Open Flow in Europe: Linking Infrastructure and Applications (OFELIA)

Start date: Sep 1, 2010, End date: Oct 31, 2013,

The aim of the OFELIA project is to create a unique experimental facility that allows researchers to not only experiment 'on' a test network but to control the network itself precisely and dynamically. To achieve this, the OFELIA facility is based on OpenFlow, a currently emerging networking technology that allows to virtualize and control the network environment through secure and standardized in ...

Optical Access Seamless Evolution (OASE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Feb 28, 2013,

Consumer bandwidth is showing no signs of slowing down and operators are now forced to explore access network migration strategies that will satisfy the anticipated bandwidth demands for the next decade. However, evolving today's access networks towards NG-OA architectures will require a multi-billion euro investment. Consequently, an important strategic aspect is the need for a thorough techno-ec ...
