Welcome to QAMeleon

QAMeleon is a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) program, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon2020 framework targeting the topic ICT-30-2017 – Photonics KET 2017 and the initiative of the Photonics Public Private Partnership. The project has a duration of 4 years, from 01/01/2018 until 31/12/2021, comprising a consortium of 16 partners and coordinated by Institute of Communications & Computer Systems (ICCS) National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece.

QAMeleon aims to deliver a new generation of faster, cheaper, and greener photonic devices spanning from beyond state-of-the-art transponders to novel reconfigurable add drop multiplexers (ROADMs) towards scaling core and metro networks to the next decade enabling:

  • SDN-enabled generation and reception of reconfigurable optical data-flows having increased spectral efficiency at ultra-high-speed rates up to 128 Gbaud with state-of-the-art modulation format techniques
  • the development of scalable Colorless Directionless Contentionless and Gridless Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexing (ROADM) node architectures supporting spectrum sliceability and on-demand switching reconfigurability.
