—For IP-over-WDM networks, optical coarse packet switching (OCPS) has been proposed to circumvent optical packet switching limitations by using in-band-controlled per-burst switching and advocating traffic control enforcement to achieve high bandwidth utilization and quality-of-service (QoS). In this paper, we first introduce the OCPS paradigm.… (More)
this paper, we first introduce the OCPS paradigm. We then present the architecture of OPSINET, describe the in-band header/payload modulation technique, and detail the operations of the edge routers, OLSRs, and GMPLS control.
In this paper, we first introduce an optical coarse packet switching (OCPS) paradigm. In principle, OCPS advocates the enforcement of traffic engineering and control to realize bandwidth-on-demand on sub-wavelength basis while circumventing optical packet switching limitations. Based on OCPS, we have constructed an experimental optical IP-over-WDM network… (More)
