· Design and evaluation of spectrally-efficient transmission systems based on optical OFDM. Investigation of all-optical OFDM transmission systems to overcome the limitations induced by electronic processing.
· Design and evaluation of advanced optical performance monitoring techniques for dynamically reconfigurable transparent optical networks based on RF spectrum analysis and asynchronous sampling.
· Centralized and distributed RWA algorithms and reservation protocols along with the required extensions to the current GMPLS RSVP-TE, OSPF-TE, and PCEP protocols for provisioning/recovery of optical services in WSON.
· Grooming and aggregation algorithms, along with the required protocol extensions, for the efficient provisioning/recovery of connection-oriented Ethernet services over WSON.
