Current inter-data-center connections are configured as static big fat pipes, which entails large bit rate over-provisioning and thus high operational costs for DC operators. On the other hand, network operators cannot share such connections between customers, because DC traffic varies greatly over time. Those connections are used to perform virtual machine(More)
The huge energy consumption of datacenters providing cloud services over the Internet has motivated different studies regarding cost savings in datacenters. Since energy expenditure is a predominant part of the total operational expenditures for datacenter operators, energy aware policies for minimizing datacenters' energy consumption try to minimize energy(More)
Datacenter federations are able to manage appropriately the green energy resources available in each datacenter (DC) thanks to their geographically distributed infrastructure, thus reducing energy expenditure. Scheduling algorithms can compute virtual machine migration, transferring huge amounts of raw data from one DC to another to minimize operational(More)
In this article we focus on lightpath adaptation under time-varying traffic in a dynamic elastic optical network (EON) implementing flexgrid optical technology. In the considered scenario, a number of IP/MPLS metro area networks performing traffic aggregation are connected through a core EON. We explore the elastic spectrum allocation (SA) capability of EON(More)

Traditional distributed radio access networks (RANs) are evolving toward centralized architectures, with the aim of satisfying in a cost-effective manner the forecast traffic growth that future mobile networks will need to support. Specifically, the cloud RAN (C-RAN) architecture has shown that it can alleviate to some extent the everincreasing total cost(More)
Creating datacenter federations allows balancing workloads accommodating spikes in cloud demand while reducing the extensive energy consumption of datacenters. This allows datacenter operators to reduce cost and increase their revenue from using under-utilized resources. To implement those elastic operations, datacenters need to be connected through a(More)
Application-specific Quality of Service (QoS) and additional Service Level Agreement (SLA) parameters to guarantee the committed service quality and avoid service interruption may be crucial in emerging applications and services. Moreover, among the wide range of services over IP transport networks, those requiring bandwidth-on-demand and related to network(More)
