Acronym: MOMENTUM5

The objective of MOMENTUM5 is to jointly investigate multi-layer Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) over Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM) networks. Spatial channels networks based on SDM (Spatial Division Multiplexing) technology can provide multiple spatial channels on a Multi-core or multi-mode fiber. It brings a new approach for building WDM networks with virtual topologies that consists of deploying virtual links between WDM nodes using spatial channels provided by the SDM network.

In particular, the following two concrete objectives are defined:

  • To design and experimentally validate SDN-enabled WDN VNT with reconfiguration of virtual WDM links in response to traffic-demand change.
  • To design and experimentally validate SDN-enabled WDM VNT with provisioning of virtual SDM links for 10Tb/s optical line interfaces.
