Globalization has changed the face and relevance of communication networks dramatically. Communication systems have become the most significant element of mission-critical infrastructure for consumers, businesses, and governments worldwide. Minimizing the risk of disruptions from human error, acts of war, terrorism, or natural disasters, while simultaneously creating a flexible, rapidly provisioned, on- demand network has become a business imperative, and requires the automation of key functions within network operations. Consequently, network architects are building survivable optical networks using intelligent optical control planes.
