In this paper, a novel Infrastructure as a Service architecture for future Internet enabled by optical network virtualization is proposed. Central to this architecture is a novel virtual optical network (VON) composition mechanism capable of taking physical layer impairments (PLIs) into account. The impact of PLIs on VON composition is investigated based on both analytical model of PLIs and industrial parameters. Furthermore, the impact of network topology on VON composition is evaluated.
