SOPRANO involves a novel adaptive and scalable wireless network architecture utilizing a mixture of cellular and packet radio network topologies for wireless Internet and multimedia communications. The architecture enables rapid adaptability to traffic, channel and interference conditions and results in significant reductions in transmit power and potential throughput improvements. Coordination among physical, data link, and network layers enable significant improvements in capacity and quality of service relative to the current state-of-the-art.
The purpose of the project is to create dynamic, deterministic, and manageable end-to-end network transport services for high-end e-Science applications. This service capability will build on the success and reach of the IP infrastructure, and will complement it with deterministic end-to-end multi-protocol services spanning multiple administrative domains and a variety of conventional campus network technologies. The project will create a Generalized MultiProtocol Label Switching (GMPLS) capable optical core network. Optical transport and switching equipment acting as Label Switching Routers (LSRs) will provide deterministic network resources at the packet, wavelength, and fiber cross connect levels. The all-optical capabilities proposed for this core network will be based on connection and resource management mechanisms defined in GMPLS and will model many of the functions of an inter-regional, national, or even global wavelength based Research and Education (R&E) networks. Attached to the core infrastructure will be experimental campus networks carved out from collaborating institutional campus infrastructure. Network requirements will be driven by tight integration with application team members.
