COSIGN

COSIGN: Combining optics and SDN In next generation data centre networks

Main Goal
SDN based network control and service orchestration for flat, scalable data center network architectures, empowered by novel optical technologies (scalable TOR optical switches, ultra-high capacity interconnects, large port density).

Nextworks role
Leader of SDN control plane architecture design and protocols extensions: SDN (OpenDaylight) + PCE.

Other key Partners
Technical University of Denmark (DK), Interoute S.P.A. (IT), University of Bristol (UK), Technical University of Eindhoven (NL), IBM (IL).
