We present an architectural model enabling a network operator to federate IT and network resources owned by private third-party actors and located at the edge. To achieve this federation, we propose a brokering layer with all necessary functions to allow third-party actors to expose their resources to operators. Based on federation and brokering of resources, we detail the architecture implementation and we illustrate the building and deployment of end-to-end network slices over multiple infrastructure domains and their customization for event-based application services. Finally, we evaluate and discuss the feasibility study and the considered use cases.

© 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 ...

  • 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 ...
