Open, Automated, & Programmable Transport Networks: A Heavy Reading Survey
Network operators understand that their automation strategies are incomplete if they do not include the transport layers. Multiple layers, transport protocols, and vendors, combined with a historical focus on proprietary technology, all make transport automation difficult to achieve, but progress is being made.
This Heavy Reading white paper, co-sponsored by Infinera focuses on the current state and future trajectory of open, automated, and programmable transport networks. Topics include; cloud automation for transport, optical transport, general transport automation requirements, and more.
