  • 1. Network+Cloud Innovation using SDNNicolas FischbachDirector, Network & Platform Strategy and Architecture© 2012 Colt Telecom Group Limited. All rights reserved.
  • 2. A network of depth and breadth• High capacity long distance network - 43,000km across Europe, 27,000km transatlantic and US• Connecting 22 countries, 39 metro networks and >150 cities• 20 carrier neutral data centres and 19,000 connected buildings• MEF & ONF member2
  • 3. Colt Data Networks Strategy Current Target Network Architecture Optical Layer Network Architecture Ethernet Layer IP Layer Integrated Eth/IP Layer Integrated Packet Optical Optical Core Core IP/MPLS Ethernet Core Core Intelligent IP Service Edge/ Ethernet Edge Aggreg Edge/Aggreg IPCPE Ethernet CPE Modular Ethernet End-user / DC compute End-user / DC compute 3
  • 4. Network+Cloud (r)evolution: bridging the chasms Telco people: Cloud/IT people: “We love our hardware” “Software rules the world” Our customer’s Our customers customers4

  • 6. Op Model (r)evolution: bridging the chasms Network Systems {Architects, Eng, Ops {Architects, Dev, Ops} incl. Capacity} Applications/Cloud Customers {Architects, DevOps}6
  • 7. Op Model (r)evolution: bridging the chasms Network Systems {Architects, Eng, Ops {Architects, Dev, Ops} incl. Capacity} SDN Applications/Cloud Customers {Architects, DevOps}7
  • 8. How much to expose / what to rethink ?• SDN: SP internal only ? Customer agnostic or specific ?• Initial delivery (incl. zero-touch and activation) vs in-life changes (and type of changes)• Systems and processes changes• Performance monitoring Service Provider• Portals and APIs• Telco vs IT approach Customers8
  • 9. Software Defined Networking: don’t forget… 2 Application Intelligence Controller 3 1 Compute Instance Data Compute Centre Instance Customer Hybrid Network Network Compute Fabric Instance Compute Instance Metering and Billing OSS (and BSS)9
  • 10. The path towards network and IT programmability Existing / Service Catalog driven order and On-going provisioning of IT and network On-demand application IT and Full integration of network services, Customer Portal driven allocation network and IT service with single for MAC, Service Assurance of IT and network Future services today ent to end control plane Automation, Service Visualization resources and ReportingManual Semi-Automated Automated On-demand Programmability Elasticity for in-life Automation for initial service delivery Automation + Elasticity changes • System driven workflow (with a number of manual • Application driven • Software-driven, end-to- steps) (“dumb” mode) end control plane • Capacity Management • An application aware • Metering and Billing network coupled with network aware applications 10

  • 12. Target Network and Platform Architecture• How much of this is real ?• Incremental vs [color]field12
  • 13. Target Network and Platform Architecture • How much of this is real ? • Incremental vs [color]field WAN DC Cloud Centric Network Managed IT (Network Virtualization, Automation and (Compute Orchestration) and Storage)Modular Carrier Ethernet Network Layer Integration (Multi-vendor Access and (Optical, Ethernet and IP Next-Gen DC Fabric Transport) WAN)OSS/BSS Ops Model Virtual CPE Ops Model OF enabled 13
  • 14. Next-Gen DC FabricEthernet : Universal Access Modular Carrier Ethernet• Transport mechanism of choice in the access / WAN• LAN technology in the DC  Connect the two• How ? • Don’t treat DC as customer premises anymore • Carrier Cloud: end-to-end connectivity, SLA and QoS • Technical and commercial service wrap • Openflow/own HW: remember not everybody is GOOG• Don’t forget: It’s also time to stop sell some services, migrate customers and remove technology14
  • 15. Managed ITDoes the protocol matter ? Network Layer Integration• The service sure does matter... But to which extend ?• Carrier Ethernet, IPVPN, IP Access ?• Into the DC• Pick on the customer’s behalf (solutions) or let him decide (wholesale/retail)... But let him change it in-life and give him visibility  APIs & open protocols & co15
  • 16. Cloud Centric NetworkSoftware-Defined Networking• aka Network Programmability• Sounds like a one-way function when networkapplication is as important• It’s not about a protocol, it’s about thinking differently about architectures (networks and systems and apps)Functions virtualization• Virtual CPE and firewalls today• Many more functions in the future16
  • 17. So what’s the future like ?• Ethernet is the de-facto access technology for WAN and LAN• Monolithic MSP/CE solutions are going to be history soon: modular, multi-vendor (i.e. IP like) and packet-oriented at all layers will be the new norm• Openness, APIs, programmability will prevail over hardware capabilities: network functions will be virtualized• Managed IT solutions will include and abstract the network• Not just bandwidth and features will change in-life, also the service type• Management of hybrid networks/solutions (e.g. capacity)• New operating models for well established carriers and people17
