SDN, in tandem with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), will shape the future of telecommunications by improving the network’s ability to dynamically adapt to the needs of applications and services. Participating OIF and Open Networking Foundation (ONF) member companies united to showcase how carriers can deploy SDN technology in their networks. The demonstration testing took place in carrier labs located in North America, Europe and Asia and leveraged technology work from the forums’ technical committees and the support of OIF and ONF carrier members. The two groups seek to accelerate adoption of OpenFlow and Transport SDN technologies that enable increased network programmability to support a new era of dynamic services.
