—p-Cycles offer a protection that corresponds to an efficient pre-configured and pre-cross-connected protection scheme. Thereafter, we study the stability and the efficient reconfiguration of p-cycles in the context of dynamic asymmetric traffic. The literature acknowledges it as a difficult problem, but which is of paramount importance in the selection of… (More)
Application opportunities associated with video, voice, and data triple-play result in a dramatic demand increase in metro transport networks, with traffic patterns becoming increasingly dynamic and difficult to predict. This is driving the need of core networks with a high degree of flexibility and multigranularities to carry traffic. We propose to… (More)
Deflection Routing is a key technique to resolve contention in optical burst-switched networks. Considering three different deflection routing strategies, we investigate the influence of network topology and of burst length on network performance in terms of dropping probability.
