This livestream has concluded. The archive video will be posted here. Archives can take up to two weeks to be posted.

Session Abstract

The concept of integrating the L2/L3 layers with the optical transport layer is not a new one. Although IPoDWDM offers some intriguing benefits, it has not been widely deployed to date. This talk briefly reviews the benefits of IPoDWDM, postulates on reasons that have limited deployment, and describes recent changes that have made deploying IPoDWDM more practical to implement. The focus is on operational benefits including improved L1/L2/L3 integration, network monitoring, and potential cost savings through space and power savings.
