    In order to realize intelligent cloud-light integration and to solve the problem of slow deploying optical transport network, the article provides a fast deployment method for end-to-end business of cross-domain and cross-vendor.


    By analyzing current status of cross-domain and cross-vendor service deployment on the live network, we find and solve the problems of intelligent optical business integration of Software Defined Network (SDN) control system of the device manufacturer with Abstraction and Control of Traffic Engineered Networks (ACTN) and Software Defined Optical Transport Network (SDOTN) standards. The paper also proposes the methods and directions to improve the SDN management and control system of device manufacturers.


    Verified by testing, by optimizing and improving the Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) management and control system of device manufacturers, the efficiency of enabling end-to-end services within a domain can be improved. The intelligent one-click deployment of cross-domain end-to-end services can be implemented.


    Proved by the test results, Optimizing and improving the SDN management and control system of equipment manufacturers is conducive to the service opening of intelligent cloud-light integration.
