Paper Abstract

IP+Optical networking technology is a key technology for realizing high-performance Internet backbone networks. Dynamic optical path cut through can create high-throughput as well as low power consumption networks. National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) Kei-han-na Info-Communication Open Lab, Interoperability Consortium, is shooting for the leading edge photonic Generalized Multi-protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Inter-Carrier Interface that utilizes wide-bandwidth, cost-effective photonic technology to implement IPcentric managed networks. Kei-han-na Open Lab is a consortium for researching the GMPLS protocol and advancing a de facto standard in this area. Its experiments, new ideas, and protocols are submitted to standardization bodies such as International Telecommunications Union-Telecommunication standardization sector (ITU-T), Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), and Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF). This paper details a nationwide GMPLS field trial that used multi-vender, multi-switching capable equipment.
