Software defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow, which enables the abstraction of vendor/technology-specific attributes, improve the control and management flexibility of optical transport networks. In this paper, we present an interoperability demonstration of SDN/OpenFlow-based optical path control for multi-domain/multi-technology optical transport networks. We also summarize the abstraction approaches proposed for multi-technology network integration at SDN controllers.
