Abstract: Energy efficiency has become an increasingly important aspect of network design, due to both the increasing operational costs related to energy consumption and the increasing awareness of global warming and climate change. This article addresses the energy consumption of different next-generation optical access solutions beyond 10G TDM PONs. It is assumed that next-generation optical access should be able to provide sustainable data rates up to 1 Gb/s per subscriber with a passive fan-out of at least 1:64. Promising system candidates that meet these criteria are compared and analyzed in terms of energy consumption. Candidate PON solutions are also compared to architectures based on point-to-point fiber. A systematic approach is developed for the energy consumption comparison. The analysis is based on estimates of power consumption for key components in next-generation systems. Among the considered candidates, we find that WDM-PON based on RSOA, stacked 10G TDM-PON, and point-to-point fiber offer the lowest power per line potential.

Optical Networks for Grid and Cloud Computing Applications

Seminar Papers Pharmacy Presentations technical IEEE ppts topics abstract on Optical Networks for Grid and Cloud Computing Applications (Seminar Paper Presentations)
Abstract:The evolution toward grid and cloud computing as observed for over a decennium illustrates the crucial role played by (optical) networks in supporting today’s applications.
In this paper, we start from an overview of the challenging applications in both academic (further referred to as scientific), enterprise (business) and nonprofessional user (consumer) domains. They pose novel challenges, calling for efficient interworking of IT resources, for both processing and storage, as well as the network that interconnects them and provides access to their users. We outline those novel applications’ requirements, including sheer performance attributes (which will determine the quality as perceived by end users of the cloud applications), as well as the ability to adapt to changing demands (usually referred to as elasticity) and possible failures (i.e., resilience). In outlining the foundational concepts that provide the building blocks for grid/cloud solutions that meet the stringent application requirements we highlight, a prominent role is played by optical networking. The pieces of the solution studied in this respect span the optical transport layer as well as mechanisms located in higher layers (e.g., anycast routing, virtualization) and their interworking (e.g., through appropriate control plane extensions and middleware). Based on this study, we conclude by identifying challenges and research opportunities that can enable future-proof optical cloud systems (e.g., pushing the virtualization paradigms to optical networks).
