G 2 MPLS is a Network Control Plane (NCP) architecture that implements the concept of Grid Network Services (GNS). In the Phosphorus framework, GNS allows the provisioning of network and Grid resources in a single-step through a set of seamlessly integrated procedures. The implementation of GNS poses a number of requirements on the Control Planes of the(More)
BonFIRE offers a Future Internet, multi-site, cloud testbed, targeted at the Internet of Services community, that supports large scale testing of applications, services and systems over multiple, geographically distributed, heterogeneous cloud testbeds. The aim of BonFIRE is to provide an infrastructure that gives experimenters the ability to control and(More)
– This paper presents some instantiations of novel application-aware network architectures for emerging IT services and future Internet applications. It proposes and analyses network architectures where the Control and Service Planes are closely and seamlessly interacting with the applications. In one instantiation, the Grid-GMPLS technologies, and(More)
—This paper presents a programmable multi-granular optical cross connect (MG-OXC) and network architecture deployable in multi-service and multi-provider networks. The concept of programmable MG-OXC is introduced to provide a way of utilizing multiple switching/transport granularities to efficiently support the emerging traffic demands in both core and(More)
This paper reports on the first user/application-driven multi-technology optical sub-wavelength network for intra/inter Data-Centre (DC) communications. Two DCs each with distinct sub-wavelength switching technologies, frame based synchronous TSON and packet based asynchronous OPST are interconnected by a WSON inter-DC communication. The intra/inter DC(More)
Grid-GMPLS is a Network Control Plane architecture that implements the concept of Grid Network Services. In the PHOSPHORUS framework, GNS is a service that allows the provisioning of network and Grid resources in a single-step through a set of seamlessly integrated procedures. By providing a unified network/Grid infrastructure the control plane can flexibly(More)
The paper presents a novel end-to-end seamless framework to support end-to-end Quality of Service and Traffic Engineering. The network model is based on the MPLS/DiffServ paradigm and addresses the definition of a network architecture according to both users and network providers requirements. A first solution relies on the centralized MPLS/DiffServ based(More)
