Research summary

My research focuses on the future dynamic optical networks with flexible network functions and fast network reconfigurations. The envisioned programmable optical networks could deliver network services automatically in an on-demand approach. The flexible network resource can accommodate network requests by providing just-enough network hardware to maximize the utilisation of network resources. The margin-reduced dynamic optical network will be one of the key research themes for intelligent optical transport. To achieve this, two key research directions are explored.

Artificial Intelligence driven optical networks

Based on the proposed SDN-based multi-layer monitoring framework, AI-based network analytics could offer novel network functions and leverage ...
