Packet Optical Networks and Services (PONS)
Call ID: UNICO-5G I+D
WHITOPEN (within the coordinated project 6GOPTRAN) aims at the development of network nodes integrating packet switching with optical transmission, exploiting the concept of whiteboxes, i.e., common chassis housing disaggregated hardware modules managed by a common system. open operating. Said operating system acts as an agent of the network node that, through open interfaces, allows the configuration of the underlying hardware to enable the programmability, monitoring and telemetry functions by an SDN controller.
