Virtualizing and Scheduling Optical Network Infrastructure for Emerging IT Services

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Emerging IT services providers which aim at delivering supercomputing power available to the masses over the Internet, rely on high performance IT resources interconnected with ultra-high performance optical networks. To adjust the provisioning of the resources to end-user demand variations, new infrastructure capabilities have to be supported. These capabilities have to take into account the business requirements of telecom networks. This paper proposes a service framework to offer Internet service providers a dynamic access to extensible virtual private execution infrastructures, through on-demand and in-advance bandwidth and resource reservation services. This virtual infrastructure service concept is being studied in the CARRIOCAS project and implemented thanks to the SRV component.
