Abstract
SDN and NFV are two novel paradigms that open the way for a more efficient operation and management of networks, allowing the virtualization and centralization of some functions that are distributed in current network architectures. Optical access networks present several characteristics (tree-like topology, distributed shared access to the upstream channel, partial centralization of the complex operations in the OLT device) that make them appealing for the virtualization of some of their functi...
