  13. 13. 13 Colt WAN SDN Application • DC Network virtualized, but WAN remains static, rigid and complex • Next step (research mode) to bring SDN to the WAN (L1/L2/L3) : WAN virtualisation & automation: – Flexible connectivity – Dynamic / On-demand connectivity attributes (BW, QoS profile) – WAN Network abstraction (multi-vendor, multi-layer) – In-life service-type change • Iinterest in both DC and non-DC WAN scenarios: – Cloud Inter-DC (data & storage) – Enterprise to DC (Public / Private Cloud) – Enterprise to Enterprise Optical & Carrier Ethernet VPN • WAN SDN overlay solutions seem realistic (several models): – OpenFlow (with transport extensions if needed) agents in WAN network devices: standard API for configuration, monitoring & configuration – Alternative to manage OF agent at the SDN controller plus other classic protocols (SNMP, etc) – Existing transport control planes available (RSVP-TE, GMPLS, etc) for overlay solutions – A mixed set of models (Overlay/Hybrid/OSS-based) to be analysed

  18. 18. 18 Conclusion and next steps • Ethernet is the de-facto access technology for WAN and DC LAN • Monolithic MSP/CE solutions are history: modular, multi-vendor (i.e. IP like) are real and will become the new norm • Next we will review the opportunity to introduce a 2nd vendor in each domain, add 100G as well as making sure our service proposition is consistent across EU • Pushing the envelope also implies challenges, it was a very interesting journey that isn’t just a technology step-change but also an operating model one • Not just a like-for-like technology replacement and evolution, but also new services, capabilities and features for our customers !
