This research project is about the enhancement of standard G-MPLS protocols to be used within the context of future optical networks. The project, funded by a major network devices manufacturer worldwide, has been through several steps since 2006, each one one year long. In the first three year collaboration we have been studying and analysing several architectural options for a GMPLS based control plane aware of both linear, non linear impairments and regenerators availability. In the last phase we have been studying restoration mechanisms and their impact on a GMPLS based transparent optical network.
