AT TOKYO Introduces SDN Technology
to Automatically Fulfill Customers’ Orders for ATBeX
Tapping into On-Demand Data Center Network Services
AT TOKYO Corporation (Headquarters: Koto-ku, Tokyo, President and Chief Executive Officer: Akira Nakamura; hereinafter referred to as "AT TOKYO") launches a new service using SDN (Software-Defined Networking*1) technology that automatically sets customers’ order information for ATBeX (AT TOKYO Business eXchange*2) with newly introduced ATBeX Orchestrator*3 that links to multiple systems.
This is AT TOKYO’s first service using SDN technology. By connecting conventional Customer Portal System*4 to ATBeX Orchestrator which has been newly developed for this time, the service enables our customers to promptly set up logical connections to AWS, GCP, and IBM Cloud on their own.
The on-demand service reduces the lead time for fulfilling a logical connection request to each cloud service from two business days to a few minutes (minimum).
The service is currently available in the ATBeX Tokyo zone. It will also be available in the ATBeX Osaka zone in the near future.
The followings are functions added to AT TOKYO Customer Portal System with the ATBeX Orchestrator:
1. Automatic validation of customer’s order information
2. ATBeX Orchestrator (automation system) interacting with API
3. Displaying up-to-date information of bandwidth capacity
