The trigger point for significant commercial deployments of transport SDN may depend on defining, testing and assuring interoperability of key network functions and interfaces.

In the 2016 OIF SDN Transport API Interoperability Demonstration, the OIF and ONF partnered to lead the industry toward the wide-scale deployment of commercial SDN by testing ONF T-API standards.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How the interoperability test and demonstration, managed by the OIF, addressed multi-layer and multi-domain environments in global carrier labs located in Asia, Europe and North America
  • What T-API modules and uses cases were tested
  • What was learned and the next steps
  • The benefits of T-API and interop testing – from a carrier's perspective
