Get Dockerized – Docker Overview In 5 Minutes

What is Docker? Docker is a virtualization environment; the concept is identical to that of  virtual machine, but significantly more lightweight.  You could construct a virtual machine image to run a single service (e.g. a web server), but launching an entire VM for a single service may be overkill.  Instead, that web server (and required resources) can […]

Navigate – SDN App By Ciena

Navigate – Multilayer Path Computation Engine Navigate is an analytic-driven engine for calculating the best route across the network. It receives and processes connection requests including the originating and terminating endpoints; the service parameters such as bandwidth and protection tier; and any constraints such as maximum latency or transit node exclusions. Next, it interrogates the […]

Protect – SDN App By Ciena

Protect – Global Restoration Calculator The Protect application computes and distributes optimal contention free restoration paths for protected services to recover from single link failures. It receives and processes the restoration path request considering the working path and the connection service parameters. It interrogates the topology and connections database and the network policy database to […]

Optimize – SDN App By Ciena

Optimize – Multilayer Network Optimizer Optimize is an application run periodically to defragment the network. When connections are initially provisioned, the Navigate multilayer path computation engine finds their optimal paths through the network; however, over time as connections churn and resources are freed up or new resources are added, the network may become sub-optimally configured […]

Overlay & Underlay Topologies In OpenDaylight

This post is dedicated to develop an understanding of how Overlay & Underlay Topologies work in OpenDaylight. I have written a small plugin to create a working example of overlay and underlay topologies. But before we jump into what the plugin does, let’s go though some definitions. Definitions As defined in network-topology.yang, for a given […]
