There have been a lot of proposals to unify the control and management of packet and circuit networks but none have been deployed widely. In this paper, we propose a simple programmable architecture that abstracts a core transport node into a programmable virtual switch, that meshes well with the software-defined network paradigm while leveraging the OpenFlow protocol for control. A demonstration use-case of an OpenFlow-enabled optical virtual switch implementation managing a small optical… CONTINUE READING
