User-to-Network Interface in Optical Network (English)
This masters thesis work was carried out at the Optical Network Research Laboratory Ericsson Telecom AB in Kungens Kurva (Sweden). Its primary objective is to study the O-UNI (Optical User-to-Network Interface), a service control interface between client devices (e.g., IP routers and ATM switches) and the transport network, and the different signaling protocols running over it.
This thesis was conducted for the Institute for Microelectronics and Information Technology (IMIT) at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm (Sweden) and for the Department of Telecommunications at Politecnico di Torino in Turin (Italy).
Recently, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) have all started working on standards for routing and signaling protocols for the Optical Transport Network (OTN). While these efforts aim to create a set of protocols to act as the interface to an optical core, the emerging architectures are different enough to present difficult choices for vendors and service providers. The goal of this thesis work was to analyze the state of the art of the OIF based UNI (User-to-Network Interface) in order to gain competence in the area and study this UNI model by implementing some of the abstract messages defined in the UNI 1.0. In particular, the UNI signaling protocols, adapted from the GMPLS RSVP-TE (Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching) (Resource Reservation Protocol - Traffic Engineering) and LMP (Link Management Protocol) specifications were implemented.
