Under the framework of the German R&D-initiative KomNet a consortium of industrial partners, co-operating research institutes and a network operator is developing and examining key technologies needed for the implementation of future multi-vendor DWDM communication networks. This paper illustrates the scope of the program and summarises research targets as well as experimental results. The KomNet demonstrator topology is sketched, and already conducted field trials are outlined.
