Network automation - efficiency in transport network operations

Reconfigurability and ease-of-use will be important features of future research networks. Moreover, these networks have to support a multitude of transmission protocols. In addition, most research institutes are at the forefront of implementing new standards and data rates, thus requiring research networks to support future data transmission rates including 40Gbit/s or 100Gbit/s.
Given the ever-changing requirements of the connected research institutes, networks will also have to offer maximum flexibility when it comes to fast and easy provisioning of new services at highest bandwidth with lowest transmission latency.
