Software-defined networking (SDN) has been instrumental in optimizing network resource utilization, enhancing service delivery and improving network efficiency. But where implementation is concerned, service providers, internet content providers and enterprises face various challenges. Transport SDN (T-SDN) enables them to address these challenges.  

In this three-part course, Jörg-Peter Elbers and Achim Autenrieth cover practical applications of SDN in optical transport networks, discussing T-SDN architecture and related data models, protocols, concepts and frameworks. They examine commercial use cases from service providers and data center operators, and then finish by giving a live demonstration of a T-SDN application using an experimental implementation in conjunction with real equipment.
