Dynamic Light Path Establishment in Switch Fabric Using OpenFlow

EasyChair Preprint no. 5523

5 pagesDate: May 13, 2021


In current optical networks, light path establishment is a manual and cumbersome process often undertaken in a NOC using a command line interface. Several recent efforts to make the process dynamic using a Software Defined Networking approach have assumed a fully interconnected fabric for the optical switch which is generally not the case. The work reported in this paper addresses, for the first time the issue of end to end path establishment while considering the switch’s internal limitations. It presents the basic framework required for an SDN based solution using the Mininet emulation platform.
