OPTICAL EDGE / ACCESS NETWORKS FOR GENI
Lokesh Mandvekar and Dr. Chunming Qiao Computer Science & Engineering, University at Buffalo
Abstract: The project aims to study the feasibility of building an experimental facility for optical edge/access networks as a part of GENI. The facility considered is a campus/city wide Passive Optical Network (PON). This report describes the PON technology, an example setup including hardware and software, and ways to make the facility is programmable and virtualizable as per need of GENI and possible ways to integrate with GENI control frameworks. It also lists the major activities. This report serves as the base for a proposal to build such a campus/city wide optical access network for GENI.
