Optical at the Core; Ethernet at the Edge: Data Plane Development Status

Time 10/16/08 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

Big science applications such as LHC, e-VLBI, and UltraGrid are here.

These applications have the potential to drive network upgrades due to their large bandwidth requirements and the need to make scattered resources available over a network. This panel discussion: "Optical in the Core, Ethernet at the Edge," will concentrate on discussing two aspects of technologies that can help campus and regional networks satisfy the demands of these big science applications.

Data Plane Development Status

This panel will discuss implementation of various technologies for data plane development including such things at Packet Optical Transport Systems, Wave switching, dynamic bandwidth allocation, Optical Transport Network, Provider Based Bridging - Traffic Engineering and others. The panel will discuss these various technologies, compare and contrast them, and discuss their sense of future directions in this area.
