In this paper, we report a testbed employing optical burst switching technology. The network model and node architecture are introduced. The key design issues, including burst format, burst assembly and channel scheduling, are discussed.
A basic framework for the design of a prototype form system, CRAFT, is proposed. CRAFT enables users to create (i.e. define and realize) forms with various structures. Form creation is an integrated concept of form definition and form realization. For form definition, a formal form model is introduced. Form realization is specified by using a create graph… (More)
