  5. 5. Digital Transformation is Required to Thrive Purpose-built hardware has limitations: 5 Siloed operations have limitations: Service Agility -Virtualization Purpose-built hardware has limitations: Enabled Service Agility • Programmable infrastructure • Automated operations • Sync: Marry cloud and network operations • Skills training: software skills needed in network, and network skills needed in datacenter • Methodology: Agile development • Legacyand datacenter operations are disconnected • Innovation processes are too slow for the digital economy • Slow deployments: truck rolls and manual provisioning is time consuming • Lock in hardware doesn’t repurpose easily • Inefficient: underutilization caused by stepped capacity © Lumina Netw orks, Inc. 2019.

  9. 9. Need for an Ubiquitous Open Source Controller The network control plane is the natural platform for: 1. Abstraction of “south bound” network elements • Switches, Routers, VNFs, Paths, Tunnels • Syslog data, operational status, monitoring of network state 2. Delegation from OSS/BSS and orchestration tools • ONAP, OSM, LSO 3. Support for network-wide applications and tools • Policy, provisioning, security, analytics, inventory OSS / BSS Apps (Policy, Analytics, Inventory) Orch Tools (ONAP, OSM, LSO) Log Monitor Status Switches, Routers, VNFs ODL Controller Paths, Topology, Trees, Tunnels © Lumina Netw orks, Inc. 2019.
