GEYSERS’s vision is to qualify optical infrastructure providers and network operators with a new architecture, to enhance their traditional business operations. Optical network infrastructure providers will compose logical infrastructures and rent them out to network operators; network operators will run cost-efficient, dynamic and mission-specific networks by means of integrated control and management techniques. GEYSERS’s concept is that high-end IT resources at users’ premises are fully integrated with the network services procedures, both at the infrastructure-planning and connection-provisioning phases.
Following this vision, GEYSERS will specify and implement a novel optical-network architecture able to support ‘Optical Network + Any-IT’ resource provisioning seamlessly and efficiently. Energy-consumption metrics for the end-to-end service routing are part of this efficiency.
