Solution Brief

SD-Core Solution Brief

SD-Core changes the way you control your network, create services, and deliver new business models.

  • Reduced time and effort to integrate a new equipment vendor into your
    IP/MPLS network increases commercial tension and lowers CAPEX
  • Reduced software footprint to have a single controller for both optical
    and packet domains
  • Reduced time to provision a new customer
  • Reduced time to define and launch a new service
  • Increased efficiency in bandwidth utilization across the domains
  • Ability to define and support more types of services to be more competitive and innovative

The Open Network Automation Platform – How Lumina Networks’ SDN Controller Helps Deliver Network Intent

The Linux Foundation’s Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) is the networking industry’s most broadly supported service orchestration initiative. With deep expertise in OpenDaylight, upon which ONAP is being built, Lumina Networks is ideally suited to provide an open source network control tool-set in a way that supports the capabilities and flexibility that service providers want and need.

Lumina Networks’ Service Abstraction Simplifies Network Management

With Lumina’s software-defined networking tools and service abstraction methodology, service providers can allow business logic – rather than vendors’ proprietary hardware and software – to define their network technology. The time it takes to make changes in the network or turn up new services is reduced from months to days (or less). Plus the reliability of change increases and flexibility enables typically disparate domains to be automated.

The 5 Factors of 5G Infographic

The climb to automation is complex. The 5G network evolution mandates change.

  • High expectations for digital transformation
  • Massive numbers of endpoints
  • Tighter dependencies between applications/services and infrastructure
  • Lack of standardized data models
  • Need to support multiple domains and clouds
  • Fundamental requirement for multi-vendor support

No software-driven control? No 5g.

Lumina Extension and Adaptation Platform, LEAP, enables 5G service automation in heterogeneous networks. Find out more about:

  • Deploying 5G in the Real World
  • Model-driven software platform enables extensible automation of
  • legacy network elements
  • Benefits of Ubiquitous Automation
  • Provision devices with legacy interfaces to co-existing with programmable network elements
  • LEAP collects Service Assurance parameters,
    normalizes them, and pushes them the stack for
    alarming, statistics, notifications etc
  • The Catalyst – Lumina Networks

Lumina Extension & Adaptation Platform (LEAP)  is a modern software framework from Lumina that enables automation of legacy network elements using model-driven frameworks, in an extensible fashion. LEAP extends Lumina’s OpenDayLight based SDN controller using a microservices architecture and enables better integration with business layers. LEAP also promotes the addition of new microservices based components in a language-agnostic manner, thereby enabling operators to use the Python skills of their DevOps teams to extend their service automation frameworks in-house, based on business demands, without dependency on external vendors.
