Three papers at the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Conference described results and features of the COSMOS tested. Kyle Guan from Nokia Bell Labs presented a study of Machine Learning algorithms developed using data recorded during measurements within COSMOS. Artur Minakhmetov, Cedric Ware, and Luigi Iannone from Paris Telecom reported results from an experiment in which a wireless handover triggered an optical switch to re-route the fiber backhaul connections. This capability has the potential to provide deterministic low latency at high speeds for future 5G and beyond networks. Members of the COSMOS team presented details of the SDN based optical control plane in a talk given by Jiakai Yu. COSMOS co-PI Dan Kilper was an invited panelist in the workshop on “Converged 5G and Heterogeneous Services Access Networks: How to Achieve Ultra-low Latency and High Reliability?”.
