PARIS -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today launched the industry’s first Software-defined Networking (SDN) App, SDN IPv6, in both Google Play and Apple App Store at MPLS SDN World Congress 2014 in Paris, France. SDN IPv6 is the industry’s first commercially available IPv6 solution with DevOps features, symbolizing a breakthrough in SDN application solutions through combination of SDN and IPv6 technologies.

There are many challenges in IPv6 deployment, including long transition times, accommodating various transition technologies, and implementing complex transition devices, etc. SDN addresses these challenges by simplifying the network architecture so that it is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, with the advantage of simple network devices and the flexible implementation of network technology.

Making use of the northbound interface of the SDN controller, SNC, and the innovative flow table technology, Huawei’s SDN IPv6 solution flexibly generates and loads various transition technologies on simple SDN forwarding devices to streamline the deployment of IPv6 transition and to reduce complexity in shifting between different transition technologies. The publically downloadable SDN IPv6 App fully demonstrates the DevOps features of this solution in that it is easy to generate, load and shift the transition technologies through open API interface, which provides a good platform for operators to flexibly adjust and select appropriate transition technologies during its network evolution.

Huawei SDN IPv6 solution has provided Internet services for several top-level standards development organization (SDO) meetings, e.g., ETSI NFV ISG, SDN Leadership and the Open Networking Summit. The result shows that this solution can flexibly and quickly deploy and shift transition technologies, enabling the performance to meet the requirements of future IPv6 deployment.

Re: Nice job Huawei!
Hi, Frank,

I couldn't find the tool in App Store after searching different names and combinations like Huawei, SDN, NFV, etc. Can you provide the name of the App and how you found it?

 

Thanks!

A vital part of increasing the number of women in comms is transforming the ways companies can support and empower women. While progressive company policies that support both men and women in achieving work-life balance are a step in the right direction, creating a company culture that supports those policies can at times be more challenging.

During this show, we'll talk to Lynn Comp, Senior Director of Industry and Sales Enabling (ISE) in the Network Platforms Group at Intel, about why those challenges exist and how companies can overcome them. She'll provide insight into how Intel has worked to create a culture that supports work-life balance, and provide steps and guidance for other companies wishing to do the same. We will also leave plenty of time to get your questions answered live on the air.
