The IST project MUPBED (www.ist-mupbed.eu) has been successfully completed in December 2007. The objectives of the project MUPBED have been centred on the establishment of an innovative, multi-layer and multidomain European test network by means of ASON/GMPLS-enabled networks and on the experimental validation of application scenarios. The key highlights of the last project phase are presented in this paper, including the final pan-European multi-layer and multi-domain network configuration and its successful integration in the OIF Worldwide Interoperability Demonstration 2007.
