Paper Abstract

Control architectures have recently been proposed to aid in unifying the packet and optical layers, with a goal of enabling network efficiency and operational simplicity for Internet service providers. Network applications that use the inter-layer information and control interfaces of these architectures are examined and analyzed for their value to different service providers and for their fit within the architectural models.
