The convergence between IT and optical network services is a fundamental step to support new emerging applications, typically distributed and with strict requirements in terms of performance and service reliability. The FP7 GEYSERS project has designed a new network architecture capable of joint and on-demand provisioning of 'Optical Network + Any-IT' resources for end-to-end service delivery. This service, referred to as Network + IT Provisioning Service (NIPS), is enabled through the cross-layer cooperation between the Service Middleware Layer (SML) and an enhanced Network Control Plane (NCP+) along the overall service lifecycle.
