Data Plane-Configurable:
 MPLS-TP: Labels of PW and LSP distributed statically
L3 VPN: L3 Tunnels in core layer for LTE X2 configured statically
Protection: configuration statically
Management Plane-Centralized:
 centralized NMS server and manually configuration
Need Control Plane - faster provisioning and operational tools foe end-to-end connectivity
 Separated from data Plane
PTN is able to evolve to ACTN in nature
Services requirements
1.
Fast Provisioning
2. Operation optimization
• Apply service
• Apply service in
through PAD/Phone
carrier office
• Provisioning period • Provisioning period
mins~days
>1month
• Manual operation
process
• Show service
status to Operator
3. Added value IT services
• Intelligent
operation system
• Show service
status to
users/operator

Network requirements: Multi-domain
end to end control
The operators had built a large scale of packet transport networks and divided them into different
areas such as access, metro and backbone networks, each area has their own management systems.
Separated operation in different domains makes the provisioning slow and operation efficiency
low.
Network requirements: Multi-Layer
resources coordination
LTE backhauling requires the PTN to realize L3 network function. This function requires the
management systems operate in different layers of networks, and leads to separate and
fragmented network configuration
Operators want to obtain the flow information and realize the load balancing within PTN
networks

PTN
In order to realize end-to-end service provision, the ACTN architecture [ACTN-FWK]
should consider the migration from traditional network management systems.

Super Controller (VNC Service Provider) provide centralized network control of
enterprise access network、metro network、backbone enterprise network
The traditional networks can be considered as a virtual network for VNC service
provider, which can be realized by network management systems providing an
abstract (AB) agent for VNC

Virtual Network Operations for Mobile
Operator’s Networks
• SKT Enabling Platform (MVNO Coordinator) is a
centralized control for value creating network
• Need a standard API/protocols from each Domain
Control of various kinds to SKT Enabling Platform
(MVNO Coordinator) to facilitate dynamic
connectivity requirements.
• Need a common network resource abstraction
model
• Need a unified control scheme to interface
various technology/data plane/management
plane/vendor domains that operates on a virtual
level.
