Abstract

The operation of multidomain and multivendor EONs
can be achieved by interoperable sliceable bandwidth variable
transponders (S-BVTs), a GMPLS/BGP-LS-based control plane,
and a planning tool. The control plane is extended to include the
control of S-BVTs and elastic cross connects, which combine a
large port-count fiber-switch (optical backplane) and bandwidth-
variable wavelength-selective switches, enabling the end-to-end
provisioning and recovery of network services. A multipartner
testbed is built to demonstrate and validate the proposed end-to-
end architecture. Interoperability among S-BVTs is experimentally
tested between different implementations. In this case, transpon-
ders are configured using the proposed control plane. The achieved
performance with hard-decision and soft-decision FECs using only
the information distributed by the control plane is measured
against the performance of the single-vendor implementation
