© 2015 IEEE.Multilayer networking is an enabling technology to support the exponential growth of traffic and its dynamicity, with sustainable costs. However, automation and collaboration between layers are still on an early stage. One of the reasons is the absence of pure multilayer planning and management solutions considering the network as a whole entity, where layers cooperate with each other, instead of the sum of individual layers providing isolated services. In this paper, we revisit our open-source Net2Plan tool to present its new multilayer features. The novel technology-agnostic multilayer network model integrates into the Net2Plan offline network design and online network simulation tools, to provide practitioners a framework to understand the benefits of multilayer capabilities.
