The joint paper entitled “LIGHTNESS: A Deeply-Programmable SDN-enabled Data Centre Network with OCS/OPS Multicast/Unicast Switch-over” reporting the demonstration of the overall LIGHTNESS architecture has been accepted in the post-deadline session at ECOC 2015.
The final demonstration of the LIGHTNESS architecure will be held at the Exhibition of ECOC2015 Conference on September 28-30, 2015. Booth nº 716.
This deliverable presents the LIGHTNESS technique to properly manage the traffic generated by data center applications and accommodated by the LIGHTNESS network infrastructure. This technique is based on the understanding of the pros and cons of the different optical technologies (OCS and OPS) that LIGTHNESS provides and their performance impact on applications.
This deliverable reports the integration between the LIGHTNESS hybrid optical data plane developed in WP3 and based on both Optical Circuit Switching (OCS) and Optical Packet Switching (OPS) technologies with the SDN controller for data centre networks released by WP4. This integration has been achieved through the proper design and development of the OpenFlow‐based southbound interfaces.
