In this paper we present the Efficient Burst Reservation Protocol (EBRP) suitable for bufferless Optical Burst Switching networks. The EBRP protocol is a two-way reservation scheme that employs timed and in-advance reservation of resources. In the EBRP protocol timed reservations are relaxed, introducing a reservation time duration parameter that is(More)
—This paper presents an experimental performance characterization of all-optical subsystems at 40 Gb/s using interconnected hybrid integrated all-optical semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) Mach–Zehnder interferometer (MZI) gates and flip-flop prototypes. It was shown that optical gates can be treated as generic switching elements and, when efficiently(More)
—The objective of this research is to propose two new optical procedures for packet routing and forwarding in the framework of transparent optical networks. The single-wavelength label-recognition and packet-forwarding unit, which represents the central physical constituent of the switching node, is fully described in both cases. The first architecture is a(More)
—We present recent advances in photonic integration introduced by integration-related European research project IST-MUFINS. The contribution of the project in the progress of a functional photonic integration is outlined, from device fabrication to device application focusing on photonic routing using mul-tielement photonic chips. Specifically, we report on(More)

—The integration of a new generation of all-optical wavelength converters within European project IST-MUFINS has enabled the development of compact and multi-functional photonic processing systems. Here we present the realization of demanding functionalities required in high-capacity photonic routers using these highly integrated components including: Clock(More)
We present recent advances in functional photonic integration and its application for the realization of photonic Tb/s routing. Specifically, we report on the transition from single element to multi-element photonic devices with the fabrication of the first hybrid integrated arrays of optical switches using the silica on-silicon hybrid photonic integration(More)
—Two new architectures are proposed for designing physical network nodes in packet-switched structures. They allow transparent optical packet networking and are based on the association of various subsystems, which have previously been proposed, and demonstrated. These elements are mainly based on the application of nonlinear behavior in semiconductor(More)
