Fujitsu Demonstrates Real-World Applications of Multivendor, Open Source Technology

Collaborates with ONAP partners in service-on-demand proof of concept

Fujitsu Network Communications Inc.

Richardson, TX, November 13, 2017
Fujitsu has successfully demonstrated network data collection and analytics to drive SDN-controlled service assurance in a Proof of Concept (PoC) that will debut this week at the MEF17 conference. The PoC, a joint collaboration with fellow ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform) members, advances the creation of a global ecosystem of interconnected networks that support agile, assured, and orchestrated services.

In the Orange domain of the PoC, Fujitsu along with Amdocs provided Layer 2 (Ethernet) closed loop dynamic bandwidth adjustment, driven by real time network analytics through a custom microservice. Automatic bandwidth adjustment is a key tool in delivering an optimal enterprise customer experience.

Key Facts:

  • Fujitsu leveraged its Virtuora® Multivendor SDN Controller and 1FINITY™ Switch, Lambda and Transport series blades to demonstrate SDN control of Layer 2 Ethernet Services and Layer 0-1 Open ROADM networking.
  • Fujitsu created a network analytics microservice interfacing to ONAP to demonstrate real time Layer 2 service assurance. The OpenDaylight-based, multivendor Virtuora was key to enabling the integration with ONAP pre-release code and the MEF LSO framework.
Executive Comments:

“We’re excited to see our members work together on PoCs to deliver new levels of automation and streamlined service creation. Just six months ago this degree of SDN/NFV innovation would not have been possible. That’s the power of combining resources and collaborating across 55 members that represent 55 percent of the world’s mobile subscribers.”
- Arpit Joshipura, general manager of networking & orchestration, The Linux Foundation

“As a member of ONAP, Fujitsu is committed to driving the migration toward a software-centric industry, to enable simplified service creation and full automation. This PoC demonstrates that the vision of service delivery - on-demand, over any network – will soon be a reality.”
- Rod Naphan, SVP and chief technology officer at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.
