Network Transport With Segment Routing Briefing

2 hours
As modern networks have grown in complexity and scale, they require more stringent tolerances and demanding services, which has spawned the need for a more straightforward and optimized method of transmitting data. And as 5G becomes more widely adopted, such latency standards will only become more desirable. Moving to a next-generation Network Transport based on Segment Routing enables organizational agility and unprecedented control over network path optimization and end-to-end Service Level Agreements (SLA). This briefing is intended to be used for architecture validation, proofs of concepts (POCs), demonstrations, and functional and interoperability testing.

Goals & Objectives

Traffic delays and drops are often deal-breakers for real-time applications — particularly those utilizing new 5G-standard Ultra Realtime Low Latency Connections (uRLLC), which have a delay requirement of between one and 25 milliseconds. Therefore, organizations — from global financial institutions and massive public utilities to manufacturers and public sector — are looking to provide real-time services and private LTE that put demands on network transport never before seen.

Enter Network Transport with Segment Routing, which seeks to satisfy the demands of next-generation networks and services. This briefing, which is available for both SR-MPLS and SRv6, provides a blueprint for a Network Transport of the future.

The objectives of the briefing include, but are not limited to:

  • Develop Network Transport architecture based on SR-MPLS or SRv6.
  • Highlight the benefits of Segment Routing and Traffic Engineering.
  • Analyze use cases for low-delay transport.
  • Discuss the options of implementing network path constraints.
  • Incorporate OEM partner solutions where required/desired for end-to-end system.
  • Evaluate and verify the Segment Routing features and performance.
  • Discuss the difference and use cases between Flex-Algo and SR-TE.
  • Develop an understanding of Segment Routing operational aspects.
  • Conduct customer demos.
  • Enable SR-MPLS and SRv6 POCs.
  • Understand migration strategies.

More on Network Transport with Segment Routing 

Network Transport with Segment Routing was designed to simplify deployments by:

  • Making things simple by utilizing Segment Routing as a unified forwarding plane.
  • Being programmable through the use of an SR-PCE controller.
  • Allowing the operator to build custom IGP algorithms
  • Automating service provisioning through the use of NSO.

What is a briefing?

A scheduled event with a WWT subject matter expert - typically via a live Webex - where we present an overview of specific topics, technologies, capabilities, or adoption trends. Your attendees are allotted time for Q&A to pose questions specific to your organization. This is a complimentary service.

Who should attend?

This briefing is designed for any organization looking to modernize their network and realize the advantages of Network Transport with Segment Routing.

  • Solution/principal architects
  • Portfolio managers
  • Technical engineers
  • Advisors and consultants
