—In this paper, we present algorithms that compute the routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) for scheduled lightpath demands in a wavelength-switching mesh network without wavelength conversion functionality. Scheduled lightpath demands are connection demands for which the setup and teardown times are known in advance. We formulate separately the routing(More)
Automatic Service framework named Scheduling, Reconfiguration and Virtualization (SRV) is developed in CARRIOCAS project to enhance existing Telecom network infrastructures for supporting grid applications sharing IT resources interconnected with ultra-high performance optical networks. From the requirements of Grid applications a classification is proposed(More)
—This paper presents a testbed implementation of an inter-carrier GMPLS (Generalized Multi Protocol Label Switching) service architecture recently proposed. This architecture couples the Path Computation Element (PCE)-based control plane with a service plane managing discovery, composition and activation functions of inter-carrier service elements. The(More)
—As the number and variety of connected devices increase, most end-users find themselves unable to manage their home networks properly, not having enough time and/or knowledge to do so. In this paper, we propose a new approach to remove this burden from them, by fully virtualizing the home network and delegating its management and operations to the ISP,(More)
