Optical metro networks evolution driven by 5G requirements face enormous challenges. Network functions virtualized in the data centers spread to the metro nodes, IP and optical technologies must cooperate to meet the metro traffic aggregation role. Multiple technological options exist, and carriers confront the need to economically assess them, ben...
Conference Paper
We demonstrate an open-source filterless-aware multilayer WDM-network planning tool, that allows hands-on creation of mixed filterless/ed topologies and the application of built-in or user-developed algorithms and analysis tools for line engineering, spectrum and cost planning.

This work presents a case study for the network planning of a 5G backhaul in a dense urban area. The study is fed by estimated population density data and real geographical layout coming from a Spanish city (Cartagena, around 220,000 population). The layout includes current locations of 4G base stations, which are assumed to place also new 5G macro...

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies enable a major technological breakthrough for telecom operators' networks. In this paper, we present the NFV over IP over WDM (NIW) library, an open-source framework for SDN/NFV metropolitan networks, created in the context of the Metro-Haul project. NIW is a l...
Conference Paper
Carrier-grade telecommunication infrastructure must support an ever-increasing traffic volume and dynamicity in operationally-complex networks characterized by multiple domains, multiple technologies and equipment from multiple vendors. At the same time, the advent of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) techn...

Full-text available
Traffic growth forecasts announce a dramatic future for core networks, struggling to keep the pace of traffic augmentation. Internet traffic growth primarily stems from the proliferation of cloud services and the massive amounts of data distributed by the content delivery networks (CDNs) hosting these services. In this paper, we investigate the evo...
Conference Paper

This demonstration showcases the open-source Net2Plan tool optimally computing and provisioning Service Chain requests with latency considerations by interfacing to an ONOS-controlled metro network and an ETSI-OSM instance orchestrating a set of OpenStack VIMs.
Article
Transport ecosystems that combine Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are characterized by an unprecedented network control and resource dynamicity. Manual optimization is unmanageable. In this context, open systems that manage and orchestrate SDN/NFV-enabled networks offer programming frameworks that abstrac...

To effectively keep pace with the global IP traffic growth forecasted in the years to come, flex-grid over multi-core fiber (MCF) networks can bring superior spectrum utilization flexibility, as well as bandwidth scalability far beyond the non-linear Shannon’s limit. In such a network scenario, however, full node switching re-configurability will r...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The majority of the research studies on Flex-Grid over multi-core fiber (Flex-Grid/MCF) networks are built on the assumption of fully non-blocking ROADMs (FNB-ROADMs), able to switch any portion of the spectrum from any input core of any input fiber to any output core of any output fiber. Such flexibility comes at an enormous extra hardware cost. I...

The overall objective of the Pharaon project is to provide support for Europe’s ageing population by integrating digital services, devices, and tools into open platforms that can be readily deployed while maintaining the dignity of older adults and enhancing their independence, safety, and capabilities.
Project
ONOFRE-2 aims at extending the capabilities offered by the converged access/metro network designed in the previous national project ONOFRE by encouraging NFV techniques over a virtualized infrastructure. Virtualization, together with the use of the MEC paradigm, enable both energy consumption and cost reductions, and open the door to new IoT or tactile Internet services. The novelties of ONOFRE-2 are (1) the proposal of architectures, planning methods and holistic control techniques for converged access/metro networks able to comply with the requirements of 5G, IoT and Tactile Internet services, (2) the introduction of the MEC paradigm as a key ingredient to attain the previous objective, and (3) the use of SDN and NFV techniques as additional enabling tools.
