An OpenFlow Enabled Optical Networking Paradigm for Future Internet Services

Time 10/05/11 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

This presentation proposes an optical networking paradigm suitable for future Internet services enabled by OpenFlow. The OpenFlow technology supports the programmability of network functions and protocols by separating the data plane and the control plane, which are currently vertically integrated in routers and switches. OpenFlow facilitates fundamental changes in the behavior of networks and their associated protocols. This session introduces an OpenFlow optical network architecture enabled by optical flow, optical flow switching elements and programmable OpenFlow controllers. The proposed solution integrates OpenFlow and GMPLS enabling intelligent, user controlled and programmable optical network service provisioning with the capability to operate any user defined network protocol and scenario. Inter-working and integration of OpenFlow and GMPLS along with experimental setup and average flow setup time for different optical flows will be reported.
