Infinera Delivers the Xceed Software Suite
Infinera, a company long known for its industry leading photonic integration, has announced the release of its Xceed Software Suite. The suite consists of an open-source, OpenDaylight controller, microservices based multi-layer path computation element and multiple dynamic services applications. Network abstraction is achieved by leveraging open APIs, information modeling and Infinera’s Open Transport Switch technology.
Although software defined networking deployments are common in data centers and some Webscale networks, transport SDN has been slower to emerge from trials and proof-of-concepts (POCs) and gain broad network adoption. The launch of the Infinera Software Suite with its Instant Virtual Networks (IVN) and Dynamic Bandwidth applications will help service providers accelerate transport SDN adoption and on-demand services.
