Summary form only given. By “opaque”, we mean important and challenging research problems in transparent optical networks that need more clarity and our research attention. Examples of such problems include: mixed-line-rate (MLR) optical networks (due to the emergence of 100G and beyond transmission technologies); hybrid circuit/packet switching (including horizontal partitioning and vertical stacking); energy efficiency in telecom networks; etc. Several of these topics will be covered in this talk.
