In order to thrive in the cloud era, communication service providers must deliver new dynamic network services while making the most efficient use of multi-layer network assets. This webinar assesses how the close coupling of IP and optical domains in automation, optimization and assurance has become a central theme in achieving these operator goals, and how multi-layer SDN has become the critical software enabler. The webinar will draw from the most recent Heavy Reading global operator survey data on the topic and will include perspective from a network operator on the leading edge of multilayer (IP/optical) carrier SDN.
