Abstract: Keio University, NTT Laboratories, and KDDI R&D Laboratories promote developing inter-carrier photonic networking technologies. This consortium is a subset of the Kei-han-na Info-Communication Open Laboratory Interoperability Working Group. The technical target of this consortium is to promote the rapid development of IP+Optical networking technologies under multi-carrier circumstances. IP+Optical networking is key to develop a new IP backbone network.
In this paper, we will present a framework of the consortium and results. The contents will be described e.g.:
- Multi-carrier IP+Optical network architecture
- Hierarchical inter-carrier interface architecture
- Interworking of PXC based Lambda Switch Capable; LSC network domains
