System and troubleshooting sdn networks using flow statistics

A method is implemented by a computing device to determine a root cause of a performance issue in a software defined networking (sdn) network using flow statistics maintained by hosts in the network. The method includes receiving a request to perform a root cause analysis (rca) for a first flow in the network that is experiencing a performance issue, obtaining flow path information for flows in the network, and obtaining flow statistics for the flows in the network, where the flow statistics are end-to-end flow statistics maintained by one or more hosts in the network.

Rack level pre-installed interconnect for enabling cableless server/storage/networking deployment

Apparatus and methods for rack level pre-installed interconnect for enabling cableless server, storage, and networking deployment. Plastic cable waveguides are configured to couple millimeter-wave radio frequency (rf) signals between two or more extremely high frequency (ehf) transceiver chips, thus supporting millimeter-wave wireless communication links enabling components in the separate chassis to communicate without requiring wire or optical cables between the chassis.

Systems and methods for statistical multiplexing with otn and dwdm

A method of statistical multiplexing with one of layer 0 flexible grid optical spectrum and layer 1 time division multiplexed (tdm) bandwidth in a multi-layer network includes obtaining a sampling of bandwidth usage over time on ports and links in the multi-layer network for one of layer 0 and layer 1 traffic using a plurality of statistical parameters, wherein the plurality of statistical parameters are defined for the one of layer 0 and layer 1 traffic; monitoring the plurality of statistical parameters; and triggering based on the monitoring one of i) adjustments to the one of layer 0 and layer 1 traffic and ii) adjustments to routing parameters on the links for new traffic, wherein the triggering is one of through a control plane and a software defined networking (sdn) controller.. .
