Leveraging FlexGrid and Advanced Modulations in a Multi-Layer Inter-Datacenter Network (W3D.1)
01:00 PM - 01:30 PM Invited Submission
The inter-DC network is unique due to a small number of locations, significant capacity, dynamic traffic and topology, and a large, shared pool of client capacity. FlexGrid increases spectrum per channel, while advanced modulations increase capacity per spectrum. The technologies combine to maximize transponder capacity and spectral efficiency.
Self-Adaptive, Multi-Rate Optical Network for Geographically Distributed Metro Data Centers (W3D.2)
01:30 PM - 01:45 PM Contributed Submission
We propose a self-adaptive, multi-rate converged architecture and control-plane for metro-scale inter-data-center networks, enabling live autonomous bandwidth steering. Experimental and numerical evaluations demonstrate up to 5x and 25% improvements in transmission times and spectrum usage.
Evaluating the Impact of Data Center Locations and Distance-Adaptive Transmission on the Wavelength Resources for Serving Cloud Traffic (W3D.3)
01:45 PM - 02:00 PM Contributed Submission
In this work, we evaluate the impact of distance-adaptive transmission and the locations of data centers (DCs) on the required bandwidth resources for serving DC-to-user and DC-to-DC cloud traffic.
Disaggregated Compute, Memory and Network Systems: A New Era for Optical Data Centre Architectures (W3D.4)
02:00 PM - 02:30 PM Invited Submission
The disaggregated dRedBox Data Centre architecture is proposed that enables dynamic allocation of pooled compute and memory resources. An orchestration platform is described and algorithms are simulated that demonstrate the efficient utilization of IT infrastructure.
Network Performance Trade-Off in Optical Spatial Division Multiplexing Data Centers (W3D.5)
02:30 PM - 02:45 PM Contributed Submission
We propose close-to-optimal network resource allocation algorithms modular data centers using optical spatial-division multiplexing. A trade-off between the number of established connections and throughput is identified and quantified.
