In many networks, the IP and Optical operations staff are split into separate teams using specific tools to operate the individual layers. There is much to be gained by augmenting this operational model with tools which enable efficient, seamless multi-layer operations in IP/optical networks. This can bring a depth and breadth of visibility, navigation, analysis and control which will allow operations to be streamlined - and the network run more efficiently, reducing cost and improving availability of services.

Topics Covered

This session will explore:

  • A set of powerful use cases in multi-layer and cross-domain management and coordination

  • The results of a benefits analysis, conducted by Appledore research, showing potential savings in an operating network
