optical cross connection
As researchers, how can we run experiments in our campus networks?
- Amenable to high-performance and low-cost implementations.
- Capable of supporting a broad range of research.
- Assured to isolate experimental traffic from production traffic.
- Consistent with vendor’s need for closed platforms.
Preliminary results suggested that an Ethane controller based ? ? on a low-cost desktop PC could process over 10,000 new flows per second — enough for a large college campus.
