ATRIUM

ATRIUM

A testbed of terabit IP Routers Running MPLS over DWDM

In the last years, the expansion of the Internet traffic required a constant increase of router throughput and capacity of the links in IP backbone networks. In the next years, this increase will be achieved by WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing), providing multiple colors on a single fiber. To tackle the limitations of the classical shortest path routing, the development of MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) took place. MPLS provides an architectural sublayer able to operate over any datalink infrastructure. The ATRIUM Consortium wishes to validate and experiment the above state of the art by deploying an advanced testbed that will additionally support QoS and fast restoration of link or node failures. ATRIUM will provide the research community with an advanced testbed containing the only European manufactured terabit router so far.
