We address the requirements and design of bandwidth on demand networks in the context of grid services. Regardless of the deployment scenario for grid services (e.g., commercial or research), there is a need for efficient use of network facilities and a need to meet the performance requirements of the grid services users. We present quantitative analysis… (More)

— A dynamic optical network that adjusts quickly and automatically to changes in offered traffic load provides performance superior to that of a network of fixed, static optical connections only under certain conditions, such as a high degree of interconnectivity among the network nodes and a coarse granularity of traffic demands relative to link capacity.
