The demo is the result of a joint innovation work in the SDN space between Huawei and Vodafone.

Two use cases are shown addressing new emerging needs of enterprises: Optical VPN can be used for big enterprise customers requesting big amount of bandwidth Bandwidth Calendaring that brings the possibility for small/medium enterprises to address sporadic, but predictable, peak in bandwidth demand for Ethernet services.
