Total budget: 2.887.055 € AIT’s budget: 350.625 €
Defined-Network-based (SDN) orchestrator capable of managing the transport networks operating in the core and backbone segments of telecommunication networks. The key features and development areas of this orchestrator are: a) an application centric northbound interface that translates efficiently the requests from different types of user and management applications into specific service requirements according to the abstracted network resources and capabilities and b) an intelligent application aware resource provisioning and optimization engine able to allocate resources dynamically (i.e. online) between the IP and Optical layers in a way that the overall required network resources are minimized while the requested service requirements from different applications are met.
AIT is leading the development activities for the Multi-layer provisioning and optimization modules and assists in the integration of the modules with the ONOS based SDN controller. Additionally, AIT is leading the techno-economic evaluation studies.
