The main aim of the EUREKA CELTIC 100GET.es will be to validate the end-to-end 100GbE Carrier Ethernet transport both from an architectural and an experimental perspectivre. Three main goals can be derived:
1. From an theoretical perspective: requirement definition, 100G transmission simulation and techno-economic validation of 100Gb Ethernet Transport architecture, including solutions for Packet Transport.
2. From a data plane perspective: design of key optical components for a coherent photodetector, characterization of optical transceivers, development of a electronically fed 10-100GbE aggregation node and experimental validation of end-to-end 100GbE transmission.
3. From a control plane perspective: development of multi-layer and multi-domain control plane solutions, development of a control plane entity for efficiently controlling an access/aggregation node, and experimental validation of the control plane functionalities to manage an integrated Carrier Ethernet over Optical transport infrastructures.
