Future Optical Core Networks for Novel Applications
Esther Le Rouzic1, Paulette Gavignet1, Bernard Arzur1, Nicolas Brochier1; 1Orange Labs, France, France.
This paper presents networks evolution in the context of ever increasing traffic volumes and analyses the impact on optical core and metro networks. It presents possible future solutions to handle the expected high capacities.

Managed Alien Wavelength Service requirements and demonstration
Andrew Lord1, Paul Wright1, Yu Rong Zhou1, Chris Look3, Peter Willis1, Gary Jeon3, Sri Nathan2, Adam Hotchkiss2; 1OP8 Polaris House, BT, United Kingdom; 2Menara, USA; 3Taseon, USA.
This paper explains the key operator need for remotely managed, coloured transceivers in client routers and switches, carried directly over DWDM networks as ‘alien wavelengths’ and describes a demonstration including in-band OTN based management.

An Impairment-aware Virtual Optical Network Composition Mechanism for Future Internet
Shuping Peng1, Reza Nejabati1, Siamak Azodolmolky1, Eduard Escalona1, Dimitra Simeonidou1; 1CSEE, University of Essex, United Kingdom.
A new impairment-aware infrastructure as a service architecture enabled by optical network virtualization is proposed. A novel impairment-aware virtual optical network composition mechanism for this architecture is proposed and its performance is evaluated.

Optical Friendly HiSpeed File Transfer Protocol For Enabling Next Generation Nomadic Virtual PC Services
Jaime Fullaondo1, Victor Lopez1, Javier Aracil1, Juan Pedro Fernandez-Palacios2; 1High Performance Computing & Networking, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain; 2Telefonica Investigacion y Desarrollo, Spain.
This work defines a HiSpeed File Transfer Protocol (FTP) designed for subwavelength metro optical networks. HiSpeed FTP improves TCP throughput, achieves a high rate in 10Gbps links and avoids penalizing transmission of small packets.

Experimental Demonstration of End-to-End Message Passing for HPC systems through a Hybrid Optical Switch
Yawei Yin1, Xiaohui Ye1, Roberto Proietti1, Venkatesh Akella1, S. J. Ben Yoo1; 1Electrical and Computer Engineering, Univ. of California Davis, USA.
We experimentally demonstrate end-to-end message passing through a hybrid optical switch and FPGAs emulating a High Performance Computing system. The experiment-driven simulation results verify the highly-scalable and low-latency nature of the switch.

A Novel Ingress Node Design for Video Streaming over Optical Burst Switching Networks
Shavan Askar1, G. S. Zervas1, David K. Hunter1, Dimitra Simeonidou1; 1CSEE, University of Essex, United Kingdom.
An OBS ingress node design implementing the “Enhanced Scheme” is shown to decrease the degradation in video quality, without increasing the network load. Simulation results show an PSNR improvement of up to of 5 dB.
