A novel Software/Hardware defIned NEtwork
(SHINE) framework for future optical network is proposed in
this paper. An FPGA based SHINE adaptive network element
(SANE) carrying time shared optical network (TSON) service
and 10G Ethernet service is implemented. A cross-platform
C++/Qt based SHINE IDE incorporating fine/coarse granular
instruction set is developed to simply compose node/network
manually or automatically. Five types of SHINE working flows,
i.e. node on demand, network on demand, node self-adaptation,
node generation, and network generation, are depicted, then
demonstrated and selectively evaluated. Particularly, a hitless
switch-over between sub-wavelength service (TSON) and low
latency fat pipe service (10G Ethernet) (network on demand),
and a receiver automatically detects transmitter’s change (i.e.
switch-over from TSON to Ethernet), then adjusts itself (node
self-adaption), are highlighted.
