Control Orchestration Protocol: Unified Transport API for Distributed Cloud and Network Orchestration

In the context of the fifth generation of mobile technology (5G), multiple technologies will converge into a unified end-to-end system. For this purpose, software defined networking (SDN) is proposed, as the control paradigm will integrate all …

Demonstration of Adaptive SDN Orchestration: A Real-Time Congestion-Aware Services Provisioning Over OFDM-Based 400G OPS and Flexi-WDM OCS

In this Paper, we experimentally demonstrate highly flexible and intelligent interdomain coordinated actions based on adaptive software-defined networking (SDN) orchestration. An advanced multidomain multitechnology testbed is implemented, which …

All-Optical Programmable Disaggregated Data Centre Network Realized by FPGA-Based Switch and Interface Card

This paper reports an FPGA-based switch and interface card (SIC) and its application scenario in an all-optical, programmable disaggregated data center network (DCN). Our novel SIC is designed and implemented to replace traditional optical network …

First Demonstration of Cognitive SDN Orchestration: A Real-Time Congestion-Aware Services Provisioning over OFDM-Based 400G OPS and Flexi-WDM OCS Networks

Evaluation of Function-Topology Programmable (FTP) Optical Packet/Circuit Switched Data Centre Interconnects

An adaptive optical data center network architecture is, for the first time, proposed and simulated. Data center traffic loads are efficiently accommodated by FTP solution, supported by synthetic optical packet/circuit switching scheme and dynamic …

100G beyond Ethernet Transport for Inter- and Intra-DCN Communication with Solutions and Optical Enabling Technologies in the ICT STRAUSS Project

A multi-domain optical infrastructure with end-to-end Ethernet transport capability can deliver Ethernet services over a large scale and provide a promising solution for inter data center networks (DCN) communication. The already existed metro and …
