The Metro-Haul Control, Orchestration and Management (COM) architecture is presented from a high-level point of view; A key, novel component of the COM architecture is the Monitoring and Data Analytics (MDA) system, able to collect monitoring data from the network, datacenters and applications which outputs can be used to proactively reconfigure resources thus adapting to future conditions, like load or degradations. To illustrate the architecture, a use case of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) network service taking advantage of the MDA is experimentally demonstrated.
