Traditional carriers' transport networks consist of  vertically-integrated devices with vendor-proprietary interfaces, that causes "vendor lock in" environment and interferes with adopting software based control and configuration for carriers' transport networks. NTT Communications are trying to adopt disaggregation approach for them to transform our operations by integrating commoditized multi-vendor components and SDN technology.

Furthermore, we will show our internal evaluation result of disaggregated transport network feasibility and discuss future development plans.
