Avaya Neutron Plugin


The Avaya Neutron Plugin manages Avaya ToR switches by Avaya Fx SDN Controller and utilizes the Avaya Fabric technologies. The Avaya Neutron Plugin is capable of configuring the the Avaya ToR switches' ports with traditional VLAN and Avaya's Fabric Network I-SID through the Avaya SDN Fx Controller.

By utilizing the next generation virtual LAN technology for the world of cloud computing the IEEE 802.1aq which is more commonly known as Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) enables unparalleled flexibility for building, deploying, and managing Ethernet networks and empowers distributed, interconnected, high-performance enterprise networking infrastructure. Using the IEEE’s next generation VLAN, called an “I-SID”, SPB supports 16-million unique Services (compared with the VLAN limit of four thousand). And, because SPB’s I-SID is a true Service ID, once it is provisioned at the edge, the network core automatically interconnects like I-SID endpoints to create a contiguous “Service” that leverages all links and equal cost connections using an enhanced shortest path algorithm.
