Part 1 – Path control in the 5G era

David Watkinson reviews the types of telemetry-based optimization options available to service providers using the NSP. He will cover sources of telemetry information and how that information can be used to optimize bandwidth consumption in their networks. Additionally, the NSP Path Control Engine (PCE) will be touched on to show how it can be used  to visualize paths and create a full view of a network, how it can be used to simulate paths in what-if scenarios and then optimize paths using traffic engineered ECMP to balance traffic flows from the data center to the cell site.
