What is Path Computation Element (PCE)?

Networking software SDN (Software Defined Networking) PCE (Path Computational Element) MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching)

Path Computation Element (PCE) is a device that computes paths on behalf of the nodes in the network. It can be a router, a COTS server, part of the OSS, or a virtualized entity running in a cloud. When a network node needs a path for an LSP, it makes a request to the PCE using the PCE protocol (PCEP). The PCE has access to topology information for the entire network and uses this in path computations.

DC-PCE is portable software for path computation element solutions designed for OEMs and carriers. It was architected and developed by the same Metaswitch engineers who created the industry leading IP Routing and MPLS protocol solutions. The end result is a carrier class product that draws upon our long history of success and experience in routing, signaling and session management.

Huawei Path Computational Element (PCE) for E2E Multidomain Networking case study

Cloud Case studies Networking software SDN (Software Defined Networking) PCE (Path Computational Element) Layer 3 MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) Huawei

Huawei’s selection of DC-PCE protocol software from Metaswitch was an expansion of the existing 10-year old relationship between the two companies. Over that time Huawei has turned to Metaswitch for a full suite of control plane technology, including IP routing, MPLS and GMPLS software. Metaswitch has extended its control plane solutions with DC-PCE, with full integration of the routing and GMPLS software. Huawei selected Metaswitch for its PCE solution due to the pre-integration and Huawei’s familiarity with Metaswitch’s high quality and exceptional support.
