Objectives

Motivation

Today, telecom operators have no but manual means to coordinate the provisioning between the routers and L2/L1 switches, and much less to communicate and coordinate policy rules, or failures between the IP networks and Ethernet/optical networks. See figure!

Current Network Scenario

Current Network Scenario with no Interaction between the IP and the Transport Network Management Systems

Goals

ONE will provide a pragmatic and easy-to-deploy solution to address the barriers shown in the previous picture. It will do so by leveraging the evolution of internetworking towards the lower layers, which necessitates some sort of coordination between the “packet” and “circuit” worlds, as well as increased acceptance of network management based solutions with selective degree of automation.

The ONE Adapter

Future Network Scenario As Envisioned with the ONE Adapter

Today, telecom operators have no but manual means to coordinate the provisioning between the routers and L2/L1 switches, and much less to communicate and coordinate policy rules, or failures between the IP networks and Ethernet/optical networks. See figure!
