    6363communication substrates into the ORCA control framework prototype, and integrate the FIND SILO framework into the ORCA control framework prototype, and IMF and SILO with each other, to enable cross-layer experimentation involving the physical layer of an optical network.  [[BR]]

     65This will enable (a) measurements from an optical substrate to be passed to a measurement consumer inside a slice; this is a valuable capability since the optical substrate characteristics may be important to the experimenter in the slice although the substrate itself is not directly observable by the experimenter, and (b) enable the automated (in-stack) consumption of measurement data; this is important for an experimenter who does not merely want to see the optical substrate measurement data after the experiment, but would like to experiment with reactive protocols designed to run inside the stack and react in real-time to measurements.

     89The overall architecture of the project has been articulated.  The first diagram below shows the experimenter view of the proposed system; realization of this is part of our Year 2 goals.  The second diagram below shows the component systems interaction architecture. [[BR]]

     99At the end of Spiral 2, we are ahead of our goals with respect to the main vision of the project, and have demonstrated real-time reactive use of optical substrate measurements to allow in-slice protocols to react by tuning optical substrate parameters.  A detailed description is available in the GEC8 demo report.  The diagram below shows the essentials of the demo setup.
