    • Designing national IP/MPLS networks with flexgrid optical technology 

      Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo; Wright, Paul; Lord, Andrew; Junyent Giralt, Gabriel (2012)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We propose a two-step procedure to design flexgrid-based national networks. Locations are first partitioned into a set of metro areas interconnected through a flexgrid optical network. Next, each network is designed ...
    • Evolution from wavelength-switched to flex-grid optical networks 

      Lord, Andrew; Rong Zhou, Yu; Jensen, Rich; Morea, Annalisa; Ruiz Ramírez, Marc (Springer, 2016)

      This book presents advances in the field of optical networks - specifically on research and applications in elastic optical networks (EON). The material reflects the authors’ extensive research and industrial activities ...
    • How national IP/MPLS networks can benefit from flexgrid optical technology? 

      Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo; Wright, Paul; Lord, Andrew; Junyent Giralt, Gabriel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      We design a 1113-node network and show that the optimum is a large Flexgrid core serving small metro areas. Cost savings of about 31% in the core and 23% in the metro are shown.
    • Planning fixed to flexgrid gradual migration: drivers and open issues 

      Ruiz Ramírez, Marc; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo; Lord, Andrew; Fonseca, Daniel; Pioro, Michal; Wessäly, Roland; Fernández-Palacios, Juan Pedro (2014-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Flexgrid technology has recently been presented as the most promising option for upgrading the currently operating fixed grid optical networks and extending their capacity to be able to deal with the massive traffic volumes ...
    • The dichotomy of distributed and centralized control: METRO-HAUL, when control planes collide for 5G networks 

      King, Daniel; Farrel, Adrian; King, Emiko Nishida; Casellas Regi, Ramon; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo; Nejabati, Reza; Lord, Andrew (2019-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      Automating the provisioning of 5G services, deployed over a heterogeneous infrastructure (in terms of domains, technologies, and management platforms), remains a complex task, yet driven by the constant need to provide ...
    • The network capacity benefits of Flexgrid 

      Wright, Paul; Lord, Andrew; Velasco Esteban, Luis Domingo (2013)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) networks of the future are likely to use Flexgrid, providing operators with additional flexibility when assigning spectrum compared to traditional WDM networks using the 50GHz ITU ...
