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.
