Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: ONECI - Optimizing Next-generation Elastic Core Network Infrastructure

Acronym: ONECI
Main Objective:
Key objective of the ONECI project: to research in detail a cost and power efficient transport network architecture able to carry a wide range of signal bandwidths, varying in real time, direction and magnitude, some of which will be
extremely large possibly exceeding 1Tb/s.
To achieve this objective, the ONECI project will study the:
• Impact of node architecture in energy consumption of optical transport networks
• Impairment-aware lightpath routing and spectrum allocation in optical transport networks with physical-layer heterogeneity
• Transport systems enabling flexible transmission and switching beyond 100Gbps per channel.
• Dynamic network resources allocation at both IP and elastic optical layers
• Multilayer network optimization tools, enabling both off-line planning and on-line network re-optimization in elastic optical networks.
