IOC is the industry’s first solution leveraging Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology for the optimization of the opticallayer. Service providers benefit from significantly improved network performance, lower latency, and up to 50 percent savings in CAPEX. Operators can now implement new services up to 90 percent faster: Tests confirmed, for example, that the set-uptime for a 100G data center service dropped from hours to minutes. IOC realizes the full potential of the transport network by enabling optimized resource utilization and comprehensive network automation, thereby facilitating shorter reaction time to end user demands.
