Infinera and Siae Microelettronica announced completion of end-to-end, SDN-enabled service orchestration across integrated IP/MPLS transport and microwave/millimeter-wave transport domains.

Conducted in collaboration with a leading Tier 1 mobile operator, this proof of concept trial showcased the ability of network operators to simplify and automate multi-domain, multi-vendor operations as mobile networks evolve to support new high-capacity, latency-sensitive 5G services.

The trial featured seamless interworking of the Siae Microelettronica SM-DC microwave domain controller, Infinera IP domain controller, Siae Microelettronica  AGS20 Layer3 microwave platform, Infinera Transcend Orchestrator, and Infinera 8600 Smart Router Series IP/MPLS platforms. Leveraging open, standards-based application programming interfaces, the integrated IP/MPLS and microwave transport solution provided a multi-domain, multi-vendor framework for a wide variety of SDN-enabled service creation and traffic management use cases.

Mikko Hannula, VP, Engineering and Product Management, Infinera
Our joint solution with SIAE MICROELETTRONICA brings a new level of dynamic network optimization to multi-domain, multi-layer, and multi-vendor networks while reinforcing the operational benefits of open networking.

Paolo Galbiati, Product Line Management Director, Siae Microelecttronica
This implementation demonstrates how network resources can be addressed to set up services in real time across different transport technologies and network areas.
