 Control Plane architectures for new optical switching technologies
enabling flexibility in time, frequency and space domains
– Juan Pedro Fernandez-Palacios, Telefonica I+D, Spain
 Two special symposia were organized :
– "Indoor optical networks - a promising way to converged service delivery“
– "Energy Consumption of the Internet"
 Hot topics:
 Flexible and elastic networks
– “Design of Flexible & Elastic Networks”
– “Control Plane Solutions for Flexible and Elastic Optical Networks”
– “Data Plane Solutions for Flexible and Elastic Optical Networks
 Open Flow and Virtualization for optical networks.
 Multicore fibres, passive and active few mode fibres and structured fibres.
 The postdeadline sessions were also dominated by flexible, elastic
technologies and new fibres or combinations of these for transmission and
network applications.
 A PD report on “Angular Orbital Momentum” gave us a glimpse of things
to expect in future ECOCs!
 “First Demonstration of an OpenFlow based Software-Defined Optical
Network Employing Packet, Fixed and Flexible DWDM Grid Technologies
on an International Multi-Domain Testbed”, Bristol, CTTC, KDDI, ADVA
