Control Plane Architecture
This document presents the LIGHTNESS control plane functional split, based on the Software Defined Networking architecture, providing a description of the architecture model and supported procedures. It also includes a possible deployment scenario where the LIGHTNESS control plane cooperates with end-to-end cloud orchestration and control functions for the provisioning of inter data centre network services in distributed cloud scenarios.
This document presents the LIGHTNESS Data Centre Network (DCN) architecture that aims at addressing the requirements and challenges coming from the emerging data centre and cloud distributed applications, mainly in terms of ultra-high bandwidth, high performance, flexibility, scalability, programmability and low-complexity.
