TOKYO, JAPAN: Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT), attains transport functions for carrier networks using white box switches. The carriers can add functionality with network operating systems to make network configuration more flexible, and provide better communication speeds to enhance the customer experience.

Network Operating System

The network operating system controls software that runs internally in network equipment such as routers and switches. Its main function is to support operating system for workstation, personal computer and other terminals connected to local area network (LAN).

The latest development has been achieved by software that enables MLPS functions required for virtual network.  It generates the best possible pathway available by exchanging data with other MLPS routers. MLPS are a form of packet transport technology used to provide virtualization function.

The “NetroSpherePIT” operation enables speedy and highly reliable services to customers and service providers. NTT’s Multi-Service Fabric (MSF) can build networks using simple products with easy function rather than the complicated specialized equipment.

Multi-Service Fabric

MSF’s network architecture can separate and redefine the simplified hardware for transport functions and software for network control. The architecture further aims to make maximum use of generic switches for network control.

The digital transformation has expanded the reach of virtual technologies. The use of these technologies is increasing in data centers to attain higher scalability and reliability.
