SDN based Lightpath Lifecycle Management for Open Disaggregated Transport Networks
The Optical Networking Industry now aims to move into a disaggregated transport network use case, so that operators can reduce operation costs and deploy open solutions for management and control of such networks. SDN controllers based on Open Daylight TransportPCE and OpenROADM Models.
In this internship, a student will deploy such a testbed integrated with LKN's in-house network planner and then conduct measurements to provide first insights into Online Optical Network Planinng
Joint Planning of Optical and Satellite QKD networks
This research internship looks at Quanktum Key Distribution exchange in a wide area pan-European network. Different architectures, routing and spectrum allocation methods need to be considered, keeping in mind both technological and economic constraints of such a combined deployment.
This work is helpful for Optical Networking as well as satellite network providers in order to provide secure data transmissions over large region multi-national governmental organizations, banks and security agencies.
Lightpath Reconfiguration Algorithms for Optical Network Planning
In this internship/bachelor thesis, a student will research different lightpath reconfiguration algorithms models and their applications to flexible optical networking. Then, they will create an evaluation framework and finally simulate a network planning study. The results will be investigated to draw useful conclusions.
