SDN

Transforming Networks to Software Defined

Software-defined Networking (SDN) makes cloud orchestration complete by providing better visibility and control of the underlying networks to elastic cloud applications. It simplifies network management and new service provisioning through a centralized SDN controller, thereby increasing business agility.

SDN

ALTEN Calsoft Labs has been working on SDN since 2010 starting with the industry’s first OpenFlow 1.0 protocol implementation for market leading Data center switches deployed by Tier-1 carriers. Since then, our SDN CoE has been offering product engineering support to several established NEMs and new SDN Controller & Application vendors in:

  • OpenFlow 1.3/1.4 enablement of switches/routers
  • SDN Controller extensions and feature enhancements
  • Element Adapter development for SDN deployment in a multi-vendor network environment
  • SDN Application development for Data center, WAN, Service Edge and Enterprise use cases
  • OpenFlow compliance testing, SDN controller applications testing and Interoperability testing of network elements with controllers
  • SDN Controller and SDN Application integration with legacy NMS/OSS and NFV orchestrators
  • SDN solution deployment and operations support (as professional services partner to NEMs)

A member of ETSI NFV ISG, ALTEN Calsoft Labs is also actively involved in virtualization of network functions, service chaining and SDN-NFV integration in Enterprise and Service Provider environments.

SDN Application Development

ALTEN Calsoft Labs offers SDN application development and systems integration services for different open source and commercial SDN Controllers such as NOX, POX, Beacon, Ryu, OpenDaylight (ODL), Cyan® Blue Planet, HP VAN Controller, NEC ProgrammableFlow®, etc.

Our services include new SDN Application development to support custom use cases, SDN Application porting to a different SDN Controller, and SDN Application integration with other operations and network management systems for end-to-end service lifecycle management.

ALTEN Calsoft Labs has experience of developing SDN applications in the following key areas for Data centers, Packet-optical Transport and Metro Service Edge.
