Currently, the need for “greener” telecommunication networks is stimulating research efforts to find new solutions to cope with power consumption and sustainability issues. Exploiting the potential of optical Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) networks for this purpose has been identified as an attractive approach. However, the traditional(More)
The ever-increasing Internet traffic demand introduces new challenges for telecommunications carriers. Telecom networks will have to be upgraded to cope with the new capacity requirements. However, deploying enough capacity is not the only requirement for network operators. The impact of new technologies in terms of capital investment and energy consumption(More)
The problem of reducing power consumption in backbone networks by adopting sleep modes has been extensively studied in the literature. In contrast to previous work, we forecast power consumption and traffic in two operator networks (France Telecom (FT) and Telefónica Investigación y Desarrollo (TID)) for the year 2020, and consider both Single Line Rates(More)
Due to the growing number of vehicles on the roads worldwide, road traffic accidents are currently recognized as a major public safety problem. In this context, connected vehicles are considered as the key enabling technology to improve road safety and to foster the emergence of next generation cooperative intelligent transport systems (ITS). Through the(More)
We have compared the total cost of an innovative elastic network with respect to the conventional WDM ones operating in realistic network scenarios. The results give an insight of the cost benefits that can be obtained with an elastic OFDM-based network for the operation of future optical transport networks with different protection schemes.(More)
The popularity of massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) has grown enormously, with communities of players reaching into the millions. Their fantasy narratives present multiple challenges created by the virtual environment and/or other players. The games’ potential for education stems from the fact that players are immersed in a virtual(More)
This paper discusses the technical feasibility and network-level potential of defragmentation as a means of extending the capacity of optical transport networks. An experimental setup successfully demonstrates the possibility of rearranging connections spectrally in order to compact spectrum and harvest the benefits from more efficient flexible-grid channel(More)
Energy-efficiency and resiliency are two well-established research topics in optical transport networks. On the other hand, their overall objectives (i.e., power minimization and resourceutilization/availability maximization) are in contrast. In fact, provisioning schemes optimized for best resiliency performance are in most cases not energy-efficient in(More)
Energy saving in telecommunications networks has become a well established topic in the research community. We look at the electrical and optical layers of IP-over-WDM networks, and present a list of evaluation criteria for the Energy-Aware Adaptive Routing Solutions (EA-ARSs) from the perspective of a network operator. Furthermore, we briefly explain the(More)
