Participation at ONS
In a plenary session on Tuesday, March 4, NTT Com Senior Vice President of Service Infrastructure Yukio Ito will talk about how NTT Com is accelerating its development and deployment of OpenFlow/SDN, SDN-enabled services and significant SDN projects underway in Asia/Pacific. In a theater presentation NTT America’s Senior Solutions Engineer Todd Ridgway will address how NTT Com is leveraging SDN to deliver innovative and differentiated cloud services to enterprises. NTT Com will also demonstrate 1) A Multiple southbound interface control Platform and Portal system or AMPP, a configurable system architecture that accommodates both OpenFlow switches and command line interface (CLI)-based network devices; 2) Lagopus Switch, a scalable, high-performance and elastic software-based OpenFlow switch that leverages multi-core CPUs and network I/O to achieve 10Gbps level-flow processing; and 3) the Versatile OpenFlow Validator or VOLT, a first of a kind system that can validate flow entries and analyze network failures in OpenFlow environments. NTT Com is a Visionary Sponsor of ONS. The company’s booth number is 403.
Real-world SDN Deployments, Award-winning SDN SolutionsAs the first service provider in the world to embrace SDN and the OpenFlow communications interface, NTT Com launched its SDN-based Enterprise Cloud in June 2012. Enterprise Cloud became available on a global basis in February 2013 and now employs SDN within and between datacenters in nine countries and eleven locations. In July 2013, NTT Com launched the world’s first SDN-based cloud migration service, On-premises Connection. The service facilitates smooth, flexible transitions to the cloud by connecting customer on-premises systems with NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud via the Internet using SDN technology. On-premises Connection substantially reduces the workload normally required to design and configure on-premises networks. Highly secure and fast, the service transfers encrypted data between on-premises systems and NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud via the Internet at up to 100 Mbps. SDN technology enables clients to make changes promptly and flexibly, such as adjusting bandwidth to transfer large data in off-peak hours. On-demand use helps to minimize the cost of cloud migration because payment for the service, including gateway equipment, is on a per-day basis.
