Description :


  • Improve technologies to scale up network capacity and control latency while at the same time limiting energy consumption, with improved reliability, safeguarding the network infrastructure against data leakage and unexpected service outages (or other form of hazards, natural or man-made) in multi-stakeholder scenarios.
  • Enhanced capability transport networks capable to cope with evolving end-user requirements, increasing and denser coverage of mobile for future cellular or cell-free communications.
  • Advances in network control, automation, and autonomy, paving the way to truly self-managed networks.


Please refer to the "Specific Challenges and Objectives" section for Stream A in the Work Programme, available under ‘Topic Conditions and Documents - Additional Documents’.


The scope focuses on new transport requirements addressed by technological advances in optical networks, including increased programmability (and corresponding vertical and horizontal interfaces) and remote configurability at the device level. Different functional splits between baseband and radio units as well as network slicing and call for co-existence of different transport modes on the same transport network.

  • Cost-effective high-capacity technologies, developing the coherent optical technologies that will lead to an interoperable low-cost converged packet-optical transport network effectively capable of removing boundaries between different network domains.
  • Novel optical transmission and switching schemes and architectures to provide innovation on the forwarding plane and that potentially will lead to the standardization of new semantic descriptions, information models, and routing protocols for management and control, catering to the specificities of evolved optical networks.
  • Pervasive telemetry to allow for a more autonomous network operation and optimization, taking energy consumption minimization into account for software-defined environments.

The above topics listed in the scope represent the core focus of SNS-2022-STREAM-A-01-03, without precluding the potential inclusion of other related technologies still contributing to the listed Expected Outcomes.
