Conducted by TIP's Converged Architectures for Network Disaggregation & Integration (CANDI) sub-group, the PoC proved that all components of an open optical network can be operated by a single SDN controller. By demonstrating unified management of the OLS, open terminals and optical planning tool, the demo paves the way for true open networking and a new model of infrastructure operations with operators taking over network integration and optimization processes. The demo utilized ADVA's compact and modular FSP 3000 OLS. With its open interfaces, the OLS interworks seamlessly with third-party transceivers and supports the latest coherent transport innovation. It also featured ADVA's Ensemble Controller network management system, which was specifically designed to help network operators break up network layers while moving towards a software-defined multi-vendor architecture. TIP partners collaborating with ADVA on the demo included the major network operators Orange, Telefónica and Telia Company.
