FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) conducted a six-week long global testing of the Transport Application Programming Interface (T-API) standard from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF). The OIF managed the multi-location demonstration which started in mid-October 2016 and concluded in December 2016. Vendor participants executed a multi-domain path selection and recovery test plan with intra-lab and inter-lab testing across five carrier labs located in Asia, Europe and North America. A technical white paper on the demonstration is available to download here. “As operators move from SDN PoCs and lab trials into commercial deployments, lack of interoperability between the SDN controllers and the orchestration layer above has quickly become the biggest technical barrier for many operators,” said Sterling Perrin, principal analyst, Heavy Reading. “Building a standardized northbound interface and successfully testing interoperability across different vendors and different networks – as the OIF has demonstrated – is a major step forward in addressing the northbound interface challenge and bringing SDN architectures to wide-scale commercial use.” The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) and the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) are leading the industry toward the wide scale deployment of commercial SDN by testing key Transport Application Programming Interfaces (T-API). The interoperability test and demonstration, managed by the OIF, addresses multi-layer and multi-domain environments in the following carrier labs; China Telecom, China Unicom, SK Telecom, Telefonica and Verizon. These carriers defined real world use cases including multi-domain orchestration of services delivered through Ethernet, OTN and optical switching. Carriers and vendors demonstrated how Virtual Network Functions (VNF) and SDN configured connectivity are combined to deliver service life cycle management. Participating vendors include ADVA Optical Networking, Ciena, Coriant, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Infinera, Juniper Networks, NEC Corporation, Sedona Systems, and SM Optics. Consulting carriers include Orange and TELUS. Academic and/or research institution participants include China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR) and Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC). Additional information can be found here. Participants in the OIF Transport SDN interoperability event also submitted a proof of concept demo proposal to ETSI NFV. The proposal, “Mapping ETSI-NFV onto Multi-Vendor, Multi-Domain Transport SDN”, was accepted and details are located here. The open demonstration of NFV concepts in a Proof of Concept (PoC) helps to build industrial awareness and confidence in NFV as a viable technology. Proofs of Concept also help to develop a diverse, open, NFV ecosystem. Results from PoCs may guide the work in the NFV ISG by providing feedback on interoperability and other technical challenges. “Being able to dynamically establish connectivity between Virtual Network Functions enables carriers to provide greater service agility and reduce opex,” said Jonathan Sadler, of Coriant and the OIF Interoperability chair. “Integrating multiple technologies using transport SDN further enables the right connectivity mechanisms used for service delivery. Having this demonstration recognized by ETSI NFV provides building blocks for the development of future SDN-WAN.” “SK Telecom is delighted that we have successfully tested interoperability using SK Telecom's Transport Infra Orchestrator and T-API. The test proves that standardized T-API can be used to control multi-layer, multi-vendor transport network infrastructure in an integrated manner,” said Park Jin-hyo, Senior Vice President and Head of Network Technology R&D Center at SK Telecom. “SK Telecom will continue to make efforts to develop 5G and network virtualization technologies to realize Network as a Service (NaaS).” The OIF facilitates the development and deployment of interoperable networking solutions and services.

The Company and the Contractor have further agreed to exchange the equivalent of $2 million of peat value and additional dumpage fees to offset the cost of the excavation, trucking and labour costs. This work is the first step in readying the site for the construction of a 50,000 square foot Tilt-up concrete warehouse structure. Tilt-up concrete construction has been chosen for the Warehouse because of the method’s proven advantages that include speed, safety and construction cost benefits. The Warehouse will serve the Langley facility’s on site tenant-growers and grower/processors from the surrounding community. Carman Parente, President and CEO of New Age Farm said, “We are pleased to be getting underway with this project which will build value into the Langley facility that will benefit our shareholders now and in the future as construction completes and the planned spin out is finalized later this spring.” About New Age Farm British Columbia Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, NHS Industries Ltd. (“NHS”), New Age Farm owns a five and a half acre facility in the lower mainland of BC that includes a 48,000 square foot greenhouse. NHS is in the process of formulating innovative proposals for small scale agricultural facilities for exploring multiple avenues for cash flow processes. Anticipating Canadian federal government regulations regarding the legalization of cannabis for recreational purposes is one avenue that NHS will be exploring. NHS also intends to look at other high value crop possibilities such as hemp and its potential revenue generation. Management’s intent is for NHS to achieve positive cash flow as expediently as possible, all the while developing and maintaining multiple product income streams that will foster profitability, rather than relying on a single market sector. Washington State Through its Washington State subsidiary, New Age Farm owns two properties, one located in Sumas, WA, and the other in Oroville, WA, where it offers fully built out turnkey service operations to licensed I-502 tenant-growers who will lease the facilities for production and / or processing. With three leases already in place, operations in Washington State have begun and will expand further as the Company completes its build outs. In compliance with state regulatory requirements, New Age Farm’s facilities feature 24 hour security that enhances the safety and security of the community, our tenant-growers and their operations. All New Age Farm’s tenant-growers hold either Tier 2 or Tier 3 licenses allowing them to produce and / or process marijuana for sale at wholesale to marijuana processor licensees and to other marijuana producer licensees. A Tier 3 license allows for between ten thousand square feet and thirty thousand square feet of dedicated plant canopy while Tier 2 licensees can have up to ten thousand square feet of dedicated plant canopy. Revenue is generated on a base lease rate and the level of service that the tenant-grower requires for its production and / or its processing needs. About the Washington I-502 Marijuana Market Sales of marijuana products in Washington State have for the first time surpassed $200 million in a quarter. The News Tribune reports residents and visitors bought more marijuana than ever before in the second quarter of 2016, based on an analysis of purchase and tax records from two state agencies. In the first quarter of 2016 January, February and March people spent $54.8 million more on spirits than marijuana, which includes the cost of the products and its associated taxes. By the second quarter April, May and June that gap closed to nearly $37 million. Those amounts include taxes levied by the state on those products. Spirits sales do not include wine and beer. Marijuana sales include all cannabis products, but not paraphernalia. Marijuana sales in the second quarter of 2016 amounted to nearly $212 million. Spirits sales in the same period amounted to almost $249 million. In July, the state closed medical marijuana shops, making all sales go through licensed recreational marijuana storefronts. Sales at retail pot shops shot up by $66.6 million in the third quarter of the year, to $278.6 million. Washington voters legalized recreational marijuana in 2012. Earlier this month voters in California, Massachusetts and Nevada approved recreational pot. Colorado, Oregon and Alaska have also legalized recreational marijuana.

The testing successfully demonstrated that T-API enables real-time orchestration of on-demand connectivity setup, control, and monitoring across diverse multilayer, multivendor, multicarrier networks. Sedona’s NetFusion is the industry’s first control platform that converges network layers, automatically discovering multivendor topology and traffic for both Optical and IP/MPLS layers, as well as the cross-layer connections between them. This allows network operators to create and deploy new services more rapidly and to significantly reduce capital and operational costs through more efficient use of their networks. In the OIF demonstration, NetFusion, working with several lower-level domain controllers, successfully discovered topology and services across multiple vendor domains. In a second phase of testing, NetFusion, again working with lower-level domain controllers, established an on-demand, low-latency IP link and the underlying optical path across multiple IP and optical network domains. "We are heartened by the success of the OIF’s SDN T-API testing,” said Ori Gerstel, CTO at Sedona. “For many years, the telecom industry has been held back by disconnected multilayer, multivendor networks that are expensive to build and operate, and are at odds with the need for rapid provisioning of new services. We developed NetFusion to solve these exact challenges, and it’s exciting to see it as part of the future taking shape in this demonstration. The collaboration between the OIF, ONF, service providers, and vendors is a very positive step forward.” The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) and the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) are leading the industry toward the wide scale deployment of commercial SDN by testing key Transport Application Programming Interfaces (T-API). The interoperability test and demonstration, managed by the OIF, addresses multi-layer and multi-domain environments in the following carrier labs: China Telecom, China Unicom, SK Telecom, Telefonica and Verizon. These carriers defined real world use cases including multi-domain orchestration of services delivered through Ethernet, OTN and optical switching. Carriers and vendors demonstrated how Virtual Network Functions (VNF) and SDN configured connectivity are combined to deliver service life cycle management.

Sedona Systems has created NetFusion, the first multilayer application platform, focusing on optimization and control of the Optical and IP/MPLS layers (L0-L3) of network operators. Enabling both optically-aware IP routing and IP-informed optical switching, our applications double effective WAN capacity, boost agility, availability, and flexibility, and save up to 50% of core network costs over 5 years. Based on a centralized open-source software tools, NetFusion connects to all major vendors’ equipment through SDN controllers or management systems. It then optimizes key tasks through dynamic, automatic management of both optical and IP resources.
