The path towards open networking among service providers and enterprise is not as smooth, primarily due to the existence of huge vendor-specific software and hardware. In this presentation, Ali Tizghadam will explain how TELUS has overcome the issue by introducing a customized open data dissemination platform. The platform enables service providers to write customized plugins for their legacy data collectors (brown field) and at the same time enables them to embrace data collectors available in open community for green field development. The platform publishes data to a common broker network, where one can subscribe to specific data and receive new updates. Moreover, the platform offers APIs for on demand access to the data in standard way. Using this approach, TELUS has abstracted the legacy layer from control layer and all controllers / orchestrators use one unified data access method.
