The ALLEGRO Horizon Europe Project impacts society, showing the evolution towards a world with increased needs of connectivity and higher capacity in support of new services and new traffic patterns.

The consortium includes partners from 10 countries: three telecom operators, five vendors, three SMEs and ten research centres and academia, combining several years of experience and a successful track record in past European projects on related technologies.

ALLEGRO targets designing, prototyping, and demonstrating a novel end-to-end (E2E) solution for next-generation optical networks. ALLEGRO integrates packet-optical transport architecture satisfying four key pillars for next-generation telecommunication systems:
* ultra-high-capacity from access to the core;
* considerable reduction of power consumption and cost;
* autonomous network control management exploiting artificial intelligence / machine learning (AI/ML) for ultra-high-capacity multi-domain optical systems; and
*secured and reliable optical transmission.
