7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge

This is the third subject within the framework of the optical side-specialization. This subject will discuss the optical networks that are built of the optical components learned within the two earlier subjects of this side-specialization.

The aim of the subject is to provide the basic knowledge on design, architecture, operation, maintenence, management, control, routing, protection, traffic engineering in multi-layer and multi-domain access - metro - backbone networks. The subject will also overview the basics of mathematical modeling of optical networks, that will enable understanding some of the above functionality.

8. Synopsis
Part I: Optical Backbone and metro aggregation networks (10 presentations + 4 exercises)

Week 1: 
·         Optical network functionality
·         Optical network generations
·         Switched optical networks
o   Towards optical packet switching: OFS/OBS/OPS

 
Week 2:
·         Multi-Layer Optical-Beard Networks (1/2): ITU-T OTN, ITU-T ASON/ASTN

 
Week 3:
·         Multi-Layer Optical-Beard Networks (2/2): IETF GMPLS, ITU-T/IETF MPLS-TP

 
Week 4:
·         Internet over optical networks: requirements, packet transport, protocolls, Internet architecture, addressing, routing
 
Week 5:
·         Design and dimensioning aspects of optical networks: logical / virtual topology, number of wavelengths per fiber,
          Wavelength assignment, number of ports, traffic grooming, multicast, energy requirements
·         Optical networks in practice - some examples

 
Week 6:
·         Operation and management of optical networks: routing, TE, network management

 
Week 7:
·         Protection and restoration of optical networks (1./2): availability, dedicated vs shared, techniques

 
Week 8:
·         Protection and restoration of optical networks (2./2): multiple-failures, problems, models, methods, algorithms

 
Week 9:
·         Optical virtual networks oVON/oVPN
·         SDN and NFV in optical networks

 
Week 10:
·         Overview and modeling of physical impairments that impct routing and optical path length 
·         Constraining effects of physical impairments in routing
·         Elastic Traffic and Elastic Spectrum: OOFDM and N-WDM
 

 
Part II:   Optical Access Networks (4 presentations + 2 excercises)
 
Weeks 11 and 12:
·   optical access networks:
o   point-to-ponit vs. point-to-multipoint systems
o   PON systems, media access: TDM, WDM, hybrid TWDM, OFDM PON
o   availability and protection of PONs

 
Week 13:
·         Which is the best? For what purpose? Techno-economic trade-offs, performance, cost, etc.
 
Week 14:
·         Design of Access networks, cost-analysis, cost-optimisation
·         fix-mobile convergence (FMC)
9. Method of instruction

oral presentation, laboratory work

 

10. Assessment

a.   Mid-term exam close to the half of the semester, roughly 50% of the material covered by the subject,
      Where the knowledge of the student must be at least 50%

b.   Exam 


11. Recaps

Repeated mid-term exam is on the first week after the teaching is finished.

After that there is no possibility for repeating the mid-term exam.

12. Consultations

Whenever needed starting from the first presentation up to the last exam.
The consultations are not fixed in advance, but are available anytime upon agreement.
