Abstract

OpenFlow, which allows operators to control the network using software running on an external controller, provides the maximum flexibility for operators, and matches the carrier's preferences given its centralized architecture, simplicity and manageability. In this paper, we present an OpenFlow-based approach for dynamic wavelength path control in future photonic networks, assessing its overall feasibility and efficiency through a field trial.
