AC069 - Corporate Optical Backbone NETwork

Welcome to the COBNET home page. The COBNET project is a member of the ACTS programme, which was established under the Fourth Framework Programme of European activities in the field of research and technological development and demonstration (1994-1998). The Programme supports research and development in advanced communications in order to facilitate economic development and social cohesion in Europe.

The overall goal of COBNET is to establish the architectural and technological concepts for the next generation of high-performance corporate networks taking advantage of new and evolving photonic technologies and existing switching/multiplexing/routing techniques.
