Advanced Integrated Services Platform
PAIS project develops and deploys an optical testbed facility that will available to the Catalan ICT sector to validate next-generation optical equipment and services.
One of the PAIS project objectives is the design and implementation of an optical multiplexing node based on ROADM technology (and Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexer) with carrier-class specifications. The transport network is deployed in Barcelona Metropolitan Area, with nodes at i2CAT (Campus Nord), the Municipal Institute of Informatics (IMI, 22@) and Orange Catalunya (Pedrosa-L’Hospitalet de Llobregat ).
Another key activity of the project is to validate a FTTH (Fiber-to-the-Home) platform. This validation is done in BAMPLA group laboratory in Castelldefels and in Bufalvent industrial park, near Manresa, which is connected to the testbed. This network extension tests and validate FTTH services aligned with the requirements of the Future Internet.
This project is cofunded by European Regional Development Fund, in the framework of Programa Operatiu Objectiu 2 de Competitivitat Regional i Ocupació de Catalunya ERDF 2007-2013.
