Ciena Corporation Key Developments
Ciena Corporation Joins SARNET Research Initiative
Jul 3 15
Ciena Corporation has joined Secure Autonomous Response programmable networks project, or SARNET, t23o explore how software defined networking, or SDN, can help improve cyber-attacks and program networks to provide cyber-terror detection and defense. SARNET is a four year collaboration agreement between the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, an airline and Ciena to explore methods for autonomous Internet security. The SARNET project allows researchers to automatically create, manipulate, move and remove network services as needed. With added software intelligence, the network can be programmed to instantly reconfigure, self-provision and self-heal, helping to prevent attacks, such as denial-of-service attacks. The research network leverages Ciena's SDN-enabled 8700 Packetwave platform with multiple research laboratories, including UvA, which is connected to Ciena's Ottawa, Canada R&D facilities via its OPn research network. International connectivity is achieved via CANARIE in Canada; Internet 2, Starlight and ESnet in the US; and, SURFnet in the Netherlands. It also includes computers and storage clouds based on the National Science Foundation's exoGENI architecture. This collaboration is exploring just one of the use-cases made possible by SDN. Autonomous Internet security would alleviate a lot of pressure on today's networks, freeing up resources and opening the industry up to a raft of other innovations. Enabling instantaneous responses to cyber-attacks or cyber warfare is a logical next step on this journey, and demonstrates an important advantage of software defined networking.
