We present an architecture enabling a network operator to federate IT and network resources owned by private third-party actors located at the edge of the network. The cornerstone of this architecture is a brokering layer that relies on a graph-based resource database. The brokering layer contains all the necessary functions allowing such federation: exposure of cross-domain resources towards network operators and their qualification for deployment and provisioning. We have implemented a Proof-of-Concept of the proposed architecture which we illustrate through the federation of a Stadium infrastructure resources and then through the on-demand creation and deployment of end-to-end network slices over multiple domains for event services. Finally, we present and discuss performance evaluation results.

© 1963-2012 IEEE. This article presents a packaged SiGe BiCMOS reflectometer for 0.01-26-GHz two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs). The reflectometer chip is composed of a resistive bridge coupler and two wideband heterodyne receivers for coherent magnitude and phase detection. In addition, a high-linearity receiver channel is designed to accommodate 20 ...

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

Digital networks at the nexus of productivity growth

  • Kamat S.

  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
