The present article is aimed to show how we can take profit from similarities between Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) architecture and Software Defined Network SDN implementation. We will outline how the SDN model can be useful for MPLS-TP network and how to meet Transport carrier requirements. We are also proposing an operational model able to satisfy one of the important Key Performance Indicators KPI related to Delay by using Delay Measurement’s DM operation and maintenance OAM procedure. This concept shows how real traffic engineering is done based on DM application module on top of Openflow controller.
