ElasticNetworks will contribute to a holistic redesign of the transport network towards a more agile, flexible, programmable Elastic Network, yet with low operation, deployment and maintenance cost, and energy efficient. This will be a superior network with respect to today’s in terms of performance, capable of provisioning network capacity where needed, with a dynamic and mobile network with high bandwidth granularity, capable of dealing with the advent of the all-connected smart world. ElasticNetworks will contribute to such a technological revolution in which the network becomes a single programmable entity, starting from the Data Center supporting the Cloud and ending in the very last user’s or thing’s device.
