      ACTN MDSC Controller


      ACTN refers to the set of virtual network operations needed to
      orchestrate, control and manage large-scale multi-domain TE networks
      so as to facilitate network programmability, automation, efficient
      resource sharing, and end-to-end virtual service aware connectivity
      and network function virtualization services.

      These operations are summarized as follows:

      • Abstraction and coordination of underlying network resources
        to higher-layer applications and customers, independent of how
        these resources are managed or controlled, so that these
        higher-layer entities can dynamically control virtual
        networks. Where control includes creating, modifying,
        monitoring, and deleting virtual networks.
      • Multi-domain and multi-tenant virtual network operations via
        hierarchical abstraction of TE domains that facilitates
        multi-administration, multi-vendor, and multi-technology
        networks as a single virtualized network. This is achieved by
        presenting the network domain as an abstracted topology to the
        customers via open and programmable interfaces. Which allows
        for the recursion of controllers in a customer-provider
      • Orchestration of end-to-end virtual network services and
        applications via allocation of network resources to meet
        specific service, application and customer requirements.
      • Adaptation of customer requests (made on virtual resources) to
        the physical network resources performing the necessary
        mapping, translation, isolation and, policy that allows
        conveying, managing and enforcing customer policies with
        respect to the services by the network to said customer.
      • Provision of a computation scheme and virtual control
        capability via a data model to customers who request virtual
        network services. Note that these customers could, themselves,
        be service providers.

      ACTN solutions builds on, and extend, existing TE constructs and
      TE mechanisms wherever possible and appropriate.

      This epic is set up to implement the following MDSC functions in the "H" release:

      • TE Extensions for Device Subsystem
      • TE Extensions for Link Subsystem
      • TE Topology Subsystem
      • Topology Database
      • ONOS GUI to show TE topology hierarchy
