Lumina Networks Unites Traditional BGP/MPLS Networks with White Box Switching Using New SD-Core Capabilities

Lumina Networks Unites Traditional BGP/MPLS Networks with White Box Switching Using New SD-Core Capabilities

This week, we implemented new features in our Flow Manager product that allow large network providers to immediately evolve their BGP/MPLS networks toward SDN, using a centralized controller and lower cost infrastructure. We will be demonstrating these features at the Linux Foundation’s Open Networking Summit in Los Angeles.

SD-Core brings both existing BGP/MPLS routers and new white box switches, under the control of SDN, combining the use of BGP, PCEP, NETCONF, OpenFlow and P4, to deliver automated end-to-end services, provisioning and management.

“In every SDN deployment, bringing the existing network under an automation framework is the number one priority,” said our CEO, Andrew Coward. “What makes Lumina different, is our ability to operate a single control plane that software defines the existing routed network and enables white-box vendors to integrate into the solution with next-generation switching protocols. This allows our provider customers to offer their existing services seamlessly over both, while at the same time expanding their offers to more advanced services, thus bridging the gap between the old and new”.

Our Flow Manager now supports the ability to define VLAN, MPLS and Segment Routing intent paths over low-cost switches. Also, Flow Manager can assign packet transport services to the paths including E-Line, E-Tree, L2VPN or L3VPN.  To achieve these capabilities, Flow Manager runs using the Lumina SDN Controller, Powered by OpenDaylight™, along with the OpenFlow and BGP plugins provided by the controller.

The implementation includes a centralized path policy manager function providing many of the traffic management features found in traditional BGP/MPLS networks also provides very unique features including fine grained traffic classification at the service ingress node, traffic replication and point to multi-point (P2MP) services including “anycast” destinations, and L2-L4 packet field manipulation at the service egress node.

Lumina Flow Manager release 6.1 is available as a free trial version, along with the Lumina SDN Controller, Powered by OpenDaylight™ and can be obtained at https://www.luminanetworks.com

Lumina Proud to Partner with ADVA and BT for Mobile World Congress Demo

ADVA Optical Networking will host a joint demo with BT at Mobile World Congress that showcases end-to-end, multi-layer transport network slicing and assurance. We’re particularly delighted to see this illustration of how edge computing and network slicing techniques can enable emerging 5G applications as it is in part made possible by our technology. With the growing anticipation of 5G connectivity, there is a critical need to develop a new transport networking technology that can meet the cost, efficiency and flexibility requirements. This demo marks just the first step in a long-term research collaboration between ourselves, ADVA, BT and other partners in this emerging space.

If you’re attending Mobile World Congress and would like to see a network architecture optimized for a new generation of applications that will enable enhanced mobile broadband, self-driving cars and massive IoT, stop by Hall 7 Stand 7H31 or Stand 7020MR.

“5G is set to enable use cases that go way beyond mobile broadband. By showcasing transport network slicing within an SDN-controlled infrastructure, we’re paving the way for 5G to support different use cases on a common infrastructure that could enable anything from self-driving cars to the massive machine-type communication (mMTC) needed for billions of IoT devices.

“Our demo shows that true end-to-end network slicing is ready for deployment. That means multiple network allocations using the same physical infrastructure can be delivered in parallel, not only in the radio access network (RAN) and mobile core network but also across transport and infrastructure resources. This technology will be vital for generating the flexibility and agility needed to bring incredible 5G applications to life,” said Anthony Magee, director, business development, ADVA.

Maria Cuevas, head, mobile core network research, BT, said, “By showcasing an architecture for wholesale services that can be efficiently reconfigured across all network layers through SDN control, we’re taking a big step forward. But this demonstration is really just the start of an intense period of research into network slicing.

Lumina Fabric Manager enables Kubernetes to control Ethernet switch fabrics from major industry vendors

SYDNEY, Australia, OpenStack Summit —Nov. 8, 2017—Lumina Networks, Inc. a market leading provider of SDN controller solutions Powered by OpenDaylight™, today announced the availability of Lumina Fabric Manager, a plug-in for Kubernetes that enables automated control and orchestration of physical Ethernet switches and fabrics from companies such as Cisco and Juniper.

The solution takes advantage of the “universal translator” abstraction capabilities of OpenDaylight to translate Kubernetes network intent into actions in the switch fabric, and helps expand the network capabilities and reach of Kubernetes from the virtual to physical world.

By deploying Lumina’s Fabric Manager, customers can shift the compute burden of networking from servers to their existing Ethernet switches.  In turn, this can free-up compute resources to allow higher density containers, to facilitate the delivery of higher and more consistent network performance.

Aside from the performance and resource gains, customers can benefit from the solution by having Kubernetes automatically control the flow of network traffic within their data centers and equipment racks to containers, provisioned in real-time.   This means that configuration of their switch fabric is kept synchronized with the networking requirements of each container.

“Lumina Networks is focused on delivering SDN applications on-top of OpenDaylight and bringing customers’ SDN projects out of the lab and into the live network”, said Andrew Coward, CEO of Lumina Networks.  “Lumina’s Fabric Manager is a perfect example of taking a real-world SDN problem and productizing a solution for large-scale adoption.”

“As we have plans to migrate compute workloads from hypervisors to containers, we recognized that Kubernetes alone could not automate provisioning on our Juniper Networks QFX™ switch fabric” said Brian Chan, Head of Infrastructure at Snapfish.  “We plan to deploy Lumina’s SDN Controller to interface between Kubernetes and the Ethernet Switches and provide fully automated network provisioning from container-based workloads to our physical network and appliances.”
