Abstract

We provide an overview of the EU-funded CHRON project, which addresses the challenge of controlling and managing the next generation of heterogeneous optical networks supporting the Future Internet. Such networks will be of a highly heterogeneous nature in terms of both a wide variety of services with different requirements, and a wide physical layer diversity in optical transmission techniques and optical switching paradigms. The CHRON project proposes a Cognitive Heterogeneous Reconfigurable Optical Network, which observes, acts, learns and optimizes its performance. The focus of the project is on the essential elements of the proposed cognitive network, in particular a cognitive decision system, an intelligent monitoring system, and a cognitive control system.
