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 …

Demonstration of Virtualizeable and Software-Defined Optical Transceiver

In order to serve the future high-performance network-based Internet applications, optical network virtualization is proposed to offer each application type a dedicated virtual optical network (VON). Virtualizeable bandwidth variable transceiver …

SDN-Enabled Sliceable BVT Based on Multicarrier Technology for Multiflow Rate #x002F;Distance and Grid Adaptation

We propose a sliceable bandwidth variable transceiver (S-BVT) architecture suitable for metro/regional elastic networks and highly scalable data center applications. It adopts multicarrier modulation, either OFDM or DMT, and a cost-effective …

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

Demonstration of Optical Virtualize-Able Transceiver Using Extended OpenFlow Control

A feasible optical virtualize-able transceiver is proposed to support virtual optical networks by creating multiple co-existing virtual transceivers controlled by SDN. This solution is experimentally demonstrated, showing on-demand selection of …

SDN-Enabled Sliceable BVT Based on Multicarrier Technology for Multi-Flow Rate/Distance and Grid Adaptation

We experimentally demonstrate multiple advanced functionalities of a cost-effective high-capacity sliceable-BVT using multicarrier technology. It is programmable, adaptive and reconfigurable by an SDN controller for efficient resource usage, enabling …
