Telecom technologies have been developed very fast in these years. To meet the new trends and requirements of telecom applications, the optical transport network needs to be restructured with more dynamic, more cost-efficient, softer and more intelligent technologies. SDN accompanied with OpenFlow protocol is a good choice. In this paper, we study the optical transport network with intelligence view, and detailed the intelligence requirement gaps between current optical transport networks and
