Solana Networks with partnership from CANARIE has developed UCLPv2 system for CA*NET4 network. UCLPv2 provides, to users, the ability to build and manage complex optical networks, known as Articulated Private Networks (APN), across multiple administrative domains. These networks comprise many varieties of network devices and communication links including lightpaths, switches, routers, instruments, and sensors. These components are exposed as, and managed through, web services. Users should be able to build complex virtual networks by harvesting and manipulating these resources.
Physical entities, such as network devices and connections, are represented as web services defined by Web Services Description Language (WSDL) documents. These services provide flexible management and control plane functionality upon which one can base complex applications and architectures. UCLPv2 is an effort that enables customers to control resource management of optical networks and to create virtual networks across multiple domains. For more information please visit www.uclpv2.com.
