Bandwidth Virtualization combines the service-ready capacity offered by coherent super-channels with ubiquitous switching using OTN, MPLS or Ethernet. The result is a dramatic improvement in the flexibility and responsiveness of the optical network by decoupling the underlying physics of the optical layer from the practical need to deliver capacity between two or more locations. The advantage for the service provider is to use time as a competitive weapon, by quickly delivering differentiated services to any point in the network.
The network will be an infinite pool of intelligent capacity that allows people to use it any way they want.
