RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions, has successfully completed an Open ROADM interoperability field trial on AT&T’s network using the Virtuora® multivendor software-defined networking solution and 1FINITY™ open hardware platform. The field trial marks an industry first in enabling multivendor interoperability for optical transport carrying live customer traffic. The successful completion of this field trial brings AT&T one step closer to better meeting customers’ changing bandwidth needs and providing a more scalable, flexible network, as well as increasing efficiency, innovation and cost savings. The trial was an extension of the Open ROADM Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), which defines interoperability specifications for Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs), including the ROADM switches, transponders and pluggable optics. The goal of the MSA is to move away from a traditionally closed ROADM optical transport network and toward a disaggregated open transport network, while allowing for centralized software control. The multivendor field trial consisted of a 100 Gbps optical wavelength in the Dallas metro area carrying live customer traffic. Fujitsu provided transponders and ROADMs from their 1FINITY open hardware platform (1FINITY T300, 1FINITY L100/L110) connecting to high capacity IP/MPLS routers. The 100G wavelength was provisioned using the Virtuora SDN Network Controller, which was integrated into the AT&T ECOMP architecture via REST APIs. “As an Open ROADM MSA member, Fujitsu shares our customers' vision for software-defined optical networks,” said Rod Naphan, chief technology officer at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. “Our 1FINITY hardware and Virtuora multivendor software platforms were designed based on the principles of openness, scalability and interoperability – which translate to cost savings, faster services deployment and improved network performance for service providers. We will continue striving to help customers like AT&T achieve their network vision.” Fujitsu is the leading Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company offering a full range of technology products, solutions and services. Approximately 156,000 Fujitsu people support customers in more than 100 countries. We use our experience and the power of ICT to shape the future of society with our customers.

In this paper, we study the problem of survivable impairment-aware virtual optical network mapping in flexible-grid optical networks (SIA-VONM). The objective is to minimize the total cost of transponders, regenerators, and shared infrastructure for a given set of virtual optical networks, which can survive single link failures. We first provide the problem definition of SIA-VONM, and then formulate the problem as an integer linear program (ILP). We also develop a novel heuristic algorithm together with a baseline algorithm and a lower bound. Numerical results show that our proposed heuristic achieves results that are very close to those of the ILP for small scale problems, and that our proposed heuristic can solve large scale problems very well. © 2014 IEEE.

Dynamic photonic networks rely on colorless, non-directional Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) nodes to enable rapid re-routing of wavelength channels without optoelectronic conversion. We report numerical simulations of the wavelength contention that can occur in such multi-degree ROADM nodes. Intra-node blocking rates and transponder utilization are computed for node designs with and without a client-side fiber cross-connect, and both are compared to results predicted for an ideally contention-free ROADM. © 2006 IEEE.

The advent of reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers with colorless and non-directional add/drop ports enables transponders and regenerators to be pre-deployed, without a priori knowledge of which wavelength or direction they will eventually serve. We study pre-deployment of optical regenerators as a means to drastically reduce the provisioning time, using Monte Carlo simulation of an optical backbone network. With appropriate placement strategies, regenerators can be efficiently pre-deployed so that new connections can be established rapidly, without the delays caused by service visits to intermediate network nodes. © 2012 Optical Society of America.

Subscriber churn is a concern of customer care management for most of the mobile and wireless service providers and operators due to its associated costs. This paper explains our work on subscriber churn analysis and prediction for such services. We work on data mining techniques to accurately and efficiently predict subscribers who will change-and-turn (churn) to another provider for the same or similar service. The dataset we use is a public and real dataset compiled by Orange Telecom for the KDD 2009 Competition. Number of teams achieved high scores on this dataset requiring a significant amount of computing resources. We are aiming to find alternative methods that can match or improve the recorded high scores with more efficient and practical use of resources. In this study, we focus on ensemble of meta-classifiers which have been studied individually and chosen according to their performances. © 2013 IEEE.
