Abstract
PROMISE will bring together the required network solutions to build and experimentally demonstrate a dynamic, self-organised, and fully service-oriented optical transport network, in the perspective to meet the needs of future optical broadband services for data traffic.

The project will support advanced high capacity services, from Bandwidth on Demand to Optical VPNs, with assured end-to-end quality and over an adaptable optical network infrastructure. PROMISE holistic approach will encompass investigation on, and implementation of, network elements, control software, management software and especially tailored services and applications that take advantage of the overall capabilities of the network.

The essential result will be a control plane enabled test-bed to showcase the provisioning and maintenance of optical services in a real world-like context, as a proof of the feasibility of providing advanced services and as a tool to identify issues to be worked out prior to commercial deployment.

Focus areas
  • Advanced high capacity services, from Bandwidth on Demand to Optical VPNs, with
    – assured end-to-end quality
    – adaptable optical network infrastructure
  • Implement network elements, control software, management software and tailored services
Expected outcome
  • Control plane enabled test-bed for provision and maintenance of optical services in a real world-like context for providing advanced services
  • Identify issues to be worked out prior to commercial deployment
