The advent of network innovations in optical networks has a significant influence on computational infrastructures in research projects. Grid applications and middleware, not yet aware of underlying network and its services, have been recently equipped with powerful tools and plug-ins to control and manage not only the computational, but also network infrastructures. However, at this point of time, Grid middleware, even if aware of network services, is not capable of seamless control and management of both, Grid and network resources. The goal of this paper is to introduce a novel approach to dynamic and on-demand management of Grid and network resources in the PHOSPHORUS project.
