We present a Resource Broker with a Virtual Network Topology Manager (VNTM) which dynamically deploys virtual GMPLS-controlled WSON networks. Virtual Optical links are constructed by grouping established optical connections which are managed by the VNTM. We evaluate the performance of the Resource Broker in the ADRENALINE testbed.
