IEEE Communications Magazine Focuses on Hybrid Networking: Special Issue Features 3 ESnet Co-authored Articles

IEEE Communications Special Issue on Hybrid Networking

May 1, 2011

IEEE Communications Magazine's May issue focused on trends in hybrid networking. This special issue includes three ESnet co-authored articles, now downloadable from our website. 

  1.  Hybrid Networks: Lessons Learned and Future Challenges from the ESnet4 Experience, shares lessons learned from operating a hybrid infrastructure consisting of separate IP-routed and dynamic circuit services. As service requirements are driven by increasingly rigorous application needs as well as impetus to reduce operating costs through automation, working out optimal frameworks will be important as the Internet evolves.
  2. Multilayer Networks: An Architecture Framework, presents an architecture framework for control and management of multi-layer, multi-domain hybrid networks and associated network services.
  3. Advance Reservation Frameworks for Wavelength-Routed WDM Networks introduces different networks and frameworks that support advance bandwidth reservation.
