Ciena Waveserver Ai

This driver allows connection to the Ciena Waveserver Ai

The User Guide for this product is available on request from Ciena, and gives a full explanation of the theory of operation, functionality and how all functions can be accessed through the NETCONF interface.

Currently only a subset of it's functionality is supported through ONOS, but this will expand to full functionality in future releases.

Compile and Installation

All that is required to activate the driver is to run the following at the ONOS CLI

app activate org.onosproject.drivers.ciena.waveserverai


Link Discovery Requirements

The Waveserver Ai does not support LLDP on the I-NNI ports. In order to allow discovery, the ports must be configured with labels:

CLI configuration example on device A

port set port 1/1 label ${remote_mac:00238afa4552}${remote_port:1-1}

A corresponding port label must be set on the far end device.

Creating Devices

Ciena Waveserver Ai Devices are not Openflow devices. The connectivity is initiated from ONOS. They have to be created through the network/configuration REST interface in ONOS.

  • The name must follow the format netconf:ipaddr:port
  • The ip and port must correspond to the ip and port in the name (above).
curl -X POST \
  http://localhost:8181/onos/v1/network/configuration \
  -H 'Authorization: Basic b25vczpyb2Nrcw==' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{

Verify Connected Device

When the Waveserver Ai is configured and connected is should be visible in ONOS through the devices command.
