MEPHISTO: Management of PhotonIc Systems and Networks

The main objective of MEPHISTO is to apply the principles of network management (TMN) to advanced all-optical core networks, namely exploiting wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) for transmission and routing. To this purpose, the project will develop an innovative and generic information model for operation and management of optical networks and network elements. MEPHISTO will also adapt and develop management software applications to perform fault, configuration and performance management, according to this new information model. Finally, MEPHISTO will demonstrate and assess the developed management system both in an optical network emulation software and in the hardware prototype of an optical WDM ring network.
