–This paper considers two important aspects related to the control plane of Traffic Engineered IP/MPLS networks: the " flooding reduction " mechanisms and the evaluation of processing cost for signaling and routing protocols. The flooding reduction mechanisms are needed to reduce the amount of information exchanged by Traffic Engineering enabled routing(More)
— This work presents Xhaul: the 5G Integrated Fron-thaul/Backhaul. Xhaul aims at developing an adaptive, sharable, cost-efficient 5G transport network solution integrating the fronthaul and backhaul segments of the network. This transport network will flexibly interconnect distributed 5G radio access and core network functions, hosted on in-network cloud(More)
Today's networking environment exhibits significant traffic variability and squeezing profit margins. An adaptive and economics-aware traffic management approach, needed to cope with such environment , is proposed that acts on short timescales (from minutes to hours) and employs an economics-based figure of merit to rellocate bandwidth in an MPLS context.(More)
