MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress Public Multi-Vendor Interoperability Test 2018

Paris, April 10-13, 2018

The European Advanced Networking Test Center and Upperside Conferences invited all interested vendors to join our public multi-vendor interoperability test and showcase at the MPLS + SDN + NFV World Congress 2018.

ADVA Optical Networking, Arista Networks, BISDN, Calnex Solutions, Cisco, Delta Electronics, ECI, Ericsson, Huawei, IP Infusion, Ixia, Juniper Networks, Meinberg, Metaswitch, Microsemi, NEC Corporation, Nokia, Oscilloquartz, UTStarcom, Spirent Communications and ZTE Corporation joined extensive tests at EANTC’s lab in Berlin, Germany.

Together with these participants, we exhibited a tangible, lab-validated network showcasing the latest advances in IP/MPLS, Software Defined Networks (SDN), microwave and mobile network clock synchronization:

The achievements of the joint multi-vendor tests include:

  • Segment Routing: Segment Routing over MPLS and over IPv6 (SRv6), LDP Interworking, Resiliency and Monitoring
  • Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN): EVPN with MPLS and Segment Routing Transport, EVPN Enhancements, IGMP Proxy, EVPN Routing, EVPN Interworking
  • Software Defined Networking (SDN):  Path Computation Element Protocol, NETCONF/YANG
  • Microwave: Bandwidth Notification, Layer3 Microwave MPLS-based Services & Transport Resiliency
  • Clock Synchronization: Phase/Time Partial & Assisted Partial Timing Support, Phase/Time Synchronization with full Timing Support for Microwave Transport, Time/Phase Holdover

    EANTC's multi-vendor interoperability showcase is a well established event beneficial for small and large vendors alike. EANTC as an independent party creates an ecosystem to conduct testing in the most advanced application scenarios addressing service providers’ needs.
