Abstract

We propose an OpenFlow-based control plane for elastic lightpath provisioning in Flexi-Grid optical networks and experimentally demonstrate its feasibility of dynamic spectrum adjustment with OpenFlow protocol. The overall latency including signaling and hardware for lightpath setup and adjustment are reported.
