The authors present a Virtual Optical Network (VON) Resource Broker and Compositor architecture to dynamically configure and deploy independent instances of virtual GMPLS-controlled WSON. The VON Resource Broker consists of four blocks: resource manager, VON controller, resource allocator and resource configurator. In this paper, the authors evaluate the impact of the proposed VON Resource Broker on the provisioning of virtual GMPLS control planes and the performance of provisioning lightpaths within a virtual control plane through experimentation in the ADRENALINE Testbed.
