As Optical Networking with DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplxing) is essential for the UNINETT network, making sure state-of-the art knowledge about optical networking technology is inhouse is essential too. This project surveys and studies the latest wthin the domain, and engages (in cooperation with companies and academia) in investigations and test of next generation optical networking equipment.
Among the activities covered by the project are
– Optical transport protocols including Flexible Optical Networking technologies
– Participance in GEANT and other EU activities
– Test and performance analysis of prototype equipment
