In this article we present the details of a generalized multiprotocols label witching controlled wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical network developed under the Optical Network Focused Interest Group (ONFIG) program in Singapore. The WDM network is controlled through a GMPLS control plane that consists of CR-LDP, LMP, and OSPF-TE. We conducted various field trials on the GMPLS-capable WDM optical network testbed with the main focus on distributed storage service application. We developed and evaluated a distributed storage services application on the WDM optical network testbed and demonstrated that incorporating a lightweight data transport protocol with optical network control could be an efficient approach for data-intensive storage applications by exploiting the dynamic connection establishment and backup protection features.
