Aiming at better resource utilization, an
important requirement of future optical transport networks is the capability to accommodate subwavelength client flows efficiently. This can be put into action
thanks to the enhanced traffic engineering (TE) protocols provided within the generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) standardization. The present paper concentrates on the design and implementation
of a GMPLS-controlled grooming-capable transport infrastructure, namely, the automatically switched optical network (ASON)ÕGMPLS CARISMA test bed. Through the paper, the operation of a GMPLS-controlled multilayer network architecture is introduced, subsequently highlighting implementation issues that come to light. Special attention is devoted to a centralized flow reallocation module deployed
in the CARISMA test bed to minimize the
overall network cost. In this context, an integer linear programming (ILP) formulation to obtain its optimal cost is derived and low-weighted metaheuristics providing a nearly optimal solution are additionally proposed. All contributions in the paper
are supported by illustrative experimental results.
