Amazing success of STRAUSS project at OFC2014

The paper "First international SDN-based Network Orchestration of Variable capacity OPS over Programmable Flexi-grid EON" has been accepted as post-deadline paper at OFC 2104 held in San Francisco, CA, USA. This paper is a joint work carried out in the STRAUSS project by Osaka University, Fujitsu, KDDI R&D Labs, University of Bristol, CTTC and Telefónica I+D.

This work shows the first experimental demonstrator of 46-108Gb/s discrete-multi-tone (DMT) fixed-length variable capacity OPS over programmable, flexi-grid elastic optical path network (EON), orchestrated via multiple OpenFlow controllers in the framework of SDN.

It will be presented by Yuki Yoshida (Osaka University) and Ricard Vilalta (CTTC) on Thursday, March 13th 2014 at 6:00pm. See you there!

Fujitsu has demonstrated at booth 3445 its 400GbE Transceiver by Optical DMT, which is partly supported by STRAUSS project.

Finally, 5 regular papers have been presented for oral presentation at the Technical Sessions:
