The STRAUSS project aims to define a highly efficient and global (multi-domain) optical infrastructure for Ethernet transport, covering heterogeneous transport and network control plane technologies, enabling an Ethernet ecosystem. It will design, implement and evaluate, via large-scale demonstrations, an advanced optical Ethernet transport architecture. The proposed architecture leverages on software defined networking principles, on optical network virtualization as well as on flexible optical circuit and packet switching technologies beyond 100 Gbps.
In particular, the STRAUSS project focuses on the integration and development of:
Outcomes of this project will be experimentally validated by means of demonstrations on large scale testbeds in EU & Japan. STRAUSS will provide technological roadmaps, technical approaches and deployment strategies aiming at shortening innovation and exploitation cycles in the area of future optical Ethernet transport networks for both academia and industry in EU and Japan.
