CHATSWORTH, USA: MRV Communications Inc. and Allot Communications Ltd have announced their collaboration to demonstrate a software-defined networking (SDN)-enabled virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) solution for bringing application awareness to service providers’ access networks.
Initiated and validated in Orange Labs, the proof of concept demonstration (PoC) will take place at the Layer 123 SDN & OpenFlow World Congress on October 14-17, 2014, in Düsseldorf, Germany.
MRV and Allot have partnered to respond to Orange’s needs by introducing an innovative solution for delivering application awareness at the access network. The solution combines a centralized traffic detection function (TDF), a programmable business CPE and an OpenDayLight SDN controller. This integrated platform initiates stringent SLA enforcement at the customer premises and sets per-application priority and dedicated bandwidth throughout the network.
