Achim Autenrieth and Jörg-Peter Elbers 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
  • Topic: Optical transport SDN: architectures, applications, and actual implementations
  • When: Sunday, June 6, 3 a.m. PDT
  • Where: OFC, The Optical Networking and Communication Virtual Conference:

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 the OFC Conference on June 6.
