ONF TAPI 2.1 advances optical transport disaggregation

The open API is being used by ODTN , the operator-led open source initiative to build optical transport networks using disaggregated optical equipment. With the new photonic capabilities added to TAPI 2.1, TAPI now covers all the major components of modern transport networks, including: Ethernet, OTN and photonic switching. TAPI 2.1 builds on the existing TAPI support for network topologies, connectivity services and notifications related to network performance, events and alarms. The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) announced that the Open Transport Config & Control Project has just approved TAPI 2.1, the latest version of the transport API that delivers a photonic media model and flexible northbound Interface (NBI). “TAPI 2.1 is an important step in the evolution of standards,” said Javier Gavilán, Core, Network Platforms and Transport Global Director at Telefonica.
