Jörg-Peter Elbers and Achim Autenrieth share transport SDN expertise at OFC

Short course will reveal insights from real-world use cases involving major service providers and data center operators

  • Speakers: Jörg-Peter Elbers, SVP, advanced technology, ADVA; Achim Autenrieth, director, advanced technology, ADVA
  • Topics: Optical transport SDN: architectures, applications, and actual implementations
  • When: Sunday, March 3, 1:00 p.m.
  • Where: OFC, The Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA

This short course will cover the practical applications of SDN in optical transport networks. It aims at bridging the gap between pure architectural concepts and real-life implementations. Using concrete network examples, it will explain the challenges service providers, internet content providers and enterprises face, and how transport SDN is addressing these challenges.

Join Jörg-Peter Elbers and Achim Autenrieth as they explore transport SDN architecture and related data models, protocols, concepts and frameworks, and provide a practical guide to standards, industry bodies, and open source alliances, at OFC, March 3 in San Diego.
