Abstract

A software architecture is proposed for hybrid packet/optical data centers employing programmable NETCONF-enabled optical switching matrix, and a performance evaluation is presented comparing hybrid and electrical-only architectures for elephant flows under different traffic patterns. Network throughput and jitter are evaluated on an emulation environment, and benefits for the hybrid scenario are demonstrated.
