Windstream: intelligent multi-layer/multi-domain network automation with SDN
04 December 2017 | Research
"With Ciena Blue Planet, Windstream can now provision 10G wavelength services in 20 days across its footprint and build on the platform to support an array of new services."
Operational efficiency and customer experience are crucial to Windstream's success in the USA, but its heterogeneous network footprint can make network service provisioning and device configuration complex and costly. Building a programmable SDN-based network with Ciena's Blue Planet Platform is helping it to simplify operations, move to DevOps-centric processes and create an extensible platform for new services.
This case study provides:
- an overview of Windstream's network automation project
- an assessment of the key business drivers, challenges and benefits.
