Sedona Announces Successful Trial With ACINO

News

Sedona Systems, a provider of software-defined networking (SDN) based multilayer automation and control platforms, has announced that the company has completed a successful trial of automation and control technologies within the Application-Centric IP/Optical Network Orchestration (ACINO), an H2020 European Union consortium comprising Sedona, Telefonica, ADVA, CREATE-NET, Acreo, and AIT.

The ACINO project aims to develop and demonstrate a modular, open-source IP/optical control platform. The platform would enable intent-based service provisioning and multi-layer restoration and optimization between IP/MPLS and optical layers within an individual network's service constraints.

During the trial the ACINO hierarchical controller leveraged the open source ONOS platform as well as an open source planning tool, Net2Plan. ADVA provided an optical controller with a Transport Application Programming Interface (T-API). Telefonica hosted the testbed in its laboratory facilities, which contained ADVA optical transport systems and Juniper Network routers using ADVA and Juniper controllers.

The service-aware automation demonstration was the first of its kind, according to Sedona.

"Automation and optimization of network functions, while being aware of service needs is key in the service provider network architecture. Such capabilities are needed for service providers to stay competitive," said Victor Lopez, technology expert at Telefonica. "I'm very pleased with ACINO's demonstrations that have proven that this is possible in a realistic network setup."
