Software Defined Core, SD-Core, architecture provides end-to-end network clarity. With a single pane of glass, SD-Core revolutionizes network capabilities by unifying network controls from the edge, to the datacenter, and through the core. By merging all legacy, cloud and programmable resources, SD-Core removes network silos to improve efficiencies and flexibility. The ubiquitous control streamlines security while enabling programmability and automation, regardless of interface. With SD-Core, service providers can deliver on-demand, customizable experiences to their customers while reducing service calls. This revolutionary architecture will change the way service providers manage their networks, create services, and deliver new business models.
By using Lumina’s SDN Controller along with its SD-Core applications, network managers can deploy services over a multi-domain network, mixing traditional routers with white box switches and virtual network functions. The approach often called intent-based networking, allows you to maintain service continuity regardless of the underlying network infrastructure.

SD-Core and SD-WAN
SD-Core and SD-WAN are complementary technology solutions. While they’re both software defined, they are completely different.
