—The exponential growth of Internet traffic gives no respite to the telecommunications industry , and is visibly shortening the life-cycle of the technologies used for core networking. To cope with the traffic demand , the industry has primarily fo-cused on the evolution of the data and control planes , and has rapidly made progress in both subjects.(More)
—Optical technologies are the foundations supporting the current telecommunication network backbones due to the high speed transmissions achieved in fiber optical networks. Traditional optical networks consist of a fixed 50 GHz grid, resulting in a low optical spectrum (OS) utilization, specifically with transmission rates above 100 Gbps. This issue is(More)
—The recent advances in optical technologies pave the way to the deployment of high-bandwidth services. As reliability becomes a mandatory requirement for some of these services, network providers must endow their networks with resilience capabilities. In recent years, network coding protection (NCP) has emerged as a tentative solution aiming at enabling(More)
—IP/MPLS and Optical technologies are the foundations of current Carrier-Grade Networks (CGNs), due to both the flexibility of IP/MPLS to provide services with distinct requirements and the high transport capacity offered by new Optical technologies, such as Elastic Optical Networks (EONs). However, despite of the widespread adoption of these two(More)
—Hybrid Software-Defined Networks (SDNs) are growing at a remarkable speed , so network administrators need to deal with the configuration of a plethora of devices including OpenFlow elements , traditional equipment , and nodes supporting both OpenFlow and traditional features. The OpenFlow Management and Configuration Protocol (OF-CONFIG) is positioned as(More)
