Abstract

In this paper we discuss the use of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) as part of the control plane of an application aware Optical Burst Switching (OBS) network, able to support Grid computing applications. The paper presents the possible alternatives for the architecture of such control plane and reports of an experiment in an existing OBS test-bed where this approach was successfully tested in practice.
