D4.1 - Report on implementation, integration and demonstration plans

Executive Summary:

STRAUSS project is focus on having realistic results which are validated with prototypes not only for data plane, but also for and control plane solutions defined in the project. This deliverable presents the work that has been done in terms of implementation, integration and demonstration activities. This document provides a description of the plans and a preliminary description of the experimental activities done in the project. The experiments planed in this document provide a set of tests to tackle the problems that are faced in the project from a practical point of view. There are three main join activities:

·         OPS/OCS integrated network test-bed. The OPS/OCS integrated network test-bed will be located in Japan and Europe and it will provide an integrated solution from an overall system perspective. The test-bed in Japan will focus on OPS, while the EU partners will focus on Elastic Optical Network (EON) to adopt the flexi-grid. With the advance of OPS and OCS technologies, an end-to-end Ethernet service provisioning and orchestration across multiple domains with heterogeneous transport and control plane technologies will be demonstrated for variable application scenarios.

·         SDN network architecture orchestration. The SDN architecture will use a hierarchical approach based on the ABNO architecture, which has been proposed as a multi-technology and multi-domain network orchestration solution. The ABNO controller is the main component of the architecture and is responsible for controlling the workflows for both OF-controlled OPS and EON domains, which are run by KDDI and University of Bristol, respectively, an OF domain from ADVA in Telefonica premises and the GMPLS EON domain in CTTC.

·         Transport virtualization visor. The proposed Virtualization Visor (VV) system architecture provides a mechanism for virtualizing transport nodes and links. The partitioning of the resources is performed by the VC, and to this end, the proposed system architecture incorporates a generic network abstraction mechanism for the different transport infrastructure resources (e.g., OPS, EON). Three virtualization domains are expected:  (1) KDDI with an OF-controlled OPS domain, (2) CTTC with a GMPLS-controlled EON domain and (3) UNIVBRIS with an OF-controlled EON domain.

All previous experiments are defined based on the reported test-bed from each partner as well as a per-partner implementation, integration and demonstration plan for all partners involved in the project. Based on this plans and the facilities of each partner a summary of the participation of the partners in the activities is presented:
