SIP-enpowered OBS network architecture for future IT services and applications


This paper presents a novel application-aware network architecture for evolving and emerging IT services and applications. It proposes and analyses network architectures that integrate Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) with Optical Burst Switched (OBS) protocols on a unified manner. We suggest various SIP-OBS layering architectures for possible deployment as well as a number of end-to-end resource discovery protocols (both for network and non-network resources). Finally the paper reports of a SIP-enpowered OBS Testbed where this approach was experimentally validated.
