The ACINO concept consists in differentiating the service offered to each application at each layer of the transport network.

The main building block is a network orchestrator for IP and Optical networks that provides dynamic multi-layer operations and exposes a set of primitives to support programmability, by establishing a common language between the transport network and the applications.

The application-centric innovation provided by ACINO will be demonstrated in a testbed composed of commercial IP routers and optical nodes.
