The aim of the TBONES project is to design and to implement, for the first time, a simulator for scalable, multi-granularity switching capable, and transparent backbone optical networks, which operate a decentralised GMPLS control plane as well as an accommodated management plane.

The unique software-based simulation platform will make it possible to create a full operational model with enhanced dynamics for the whole transparent network of a multi-Terabit capacity scale. In addition, TBONES will innovate in the global strategy adopted in the introduction of transparent network products.
