[:en]<Seongnam, 30 January, 2019> – KulCloud has successfully deployed its flagship product, PRISM, as a part of modernization project for the nation wide high-speed network backbone served by KOREN (Korean Advanced Research Network) in partnership with Korea Telecom (KT). The two year project sponsored by South-Korean Govt’s NIA (National Information Society Agency) had set its goal of deploying the first of its kind IP-SDN driven 100G core network in KOREN which spans across various major cities of South Korea.
KulCloud’s PRISM-FR and PRISM-NOS played major roles in this deployment and helped to completely overhaul and modernize KOREN. The operator was able to achieve the following goals after the deployment :
- Dis-aggregated and flexible SDN architecture – A modern, open and vendor agnostic approach with centralized management and orchestration.
- Network virtualization – Fully isolated virtual L2/L3 networks based on network slicing technology. Separate network slices are currently utilized for Broadband access, low-latency E2E interconnects for AI and BGP exchanges.
- 75% faster service provisioning e.g. ability to provision 1-click VPN and intent-based BoD (Bandwidth on Demand) etc.
- 40% reduction in overall TCO.
- Agile network monitoring/analysis made possible by richer data-set brokered by PRISM SDN stack.
PRISM’s deployment consisted of the following:
- Per POP PRISM-FR SDN controller nodes × 2 (HA mode)
- Per POP PRISM-NOS on 10G Edge-Core AS-5712 whitebox ×3 and 100G Edge-Core AS-7712 whitebox × 1
- BEEM Orchestrator x 2 (HA mode)
“KulCloud is extremely proud to be part of the first of its kind large scale IP-SDN core network deployment in South-Korea.”, said Dipjyoti Saikia, Director/Co-Founder of KulCloud. “The operator was able to realize all the lofty deployment goals and a smooth migration of existing customers. It is a testament of high standards, KulCloud set out for the product in terms of uniqueness, quality and performance.” he added.
