Next Generation Online and Centralized Optical Control Research and Development Project
Data transmission in transport networks is rapidly changing, with new service types, higher bandwidth needs, more dynamic traffic patterns, and new expectations for customer experience.
The NGOC2 project calls for a shift in the way optical networks are designed and operated, proposing systems that reconfigure dynamically and optimize the transmission of high-baud-rate signals depending on real-time connectivity constraints.
The NGOC2 project implements a solution that combines the collection of network parameters in real time, with a centralized, multi-layer, multi-domain SDN control solution, in a manner extensible to disaggregated, open networks.
This innovative project was awarded a Portugal 2020 grant (LISBOA-01-0247-FEDER-045354), for a total eligible project cost of 2.829.623,32€ and maximum EU/FEDER co-funding of 1.187.395,67€. The project started on May 2, 2019 and ran until April 30, 2021.
Thank You Portugal 2020
Portugal 2020 is the partnership agreement undertaken between Portugal and the European Commission that brings together the five European Structural and Investment Funds and sets the programming principles that enshrine the economic, social, and territorial development policy to be advanced in Portugal between 2014 and 2020.
Infinera would like to acknowledge Portugal 2020 and in particular Lisboa 2020 for co-funding this project.
