This paper considers the virtualization technologies of an optical network infrastructure and the design of related systems. The objective of the research project is to develop a network virtualization server that providing the functionality of virtualizing optical network resources and to demonstrate the network infrastructure accommodating multiple service networks using in conjunction with existing GMPLS technologies. In this paper, the authors introduce the network virtualization technology on an optical network infrastructure and also present the design of a server platform and the specification of an inter-system interface.
