We consider a slotted WDM packet switch with limited-range wavelength converters. The performance of this switch is studied using simulations with various types of data traffic. Results show that the slotted WDM packet switch with a small range of wavelength conversion capability can achieve a performance close to that of a switch with the full range of(More)
Due to the impairments in optical fiber transmission, regeneration is needed in certain intermediate nodes for some lengthy lightpaths. This kind of optical networks is called translucent optical networks. Spare transceivers in the optical nodes can be used for regeneration. The problem of maximizing the number of established connections (NEC) in the(More)
In this paper, we propose and study how to provide multipath cross-layer service discovery (MCSD) for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). Cross-layer service discovery integrates service discovery into route discovery by taking advantage of network-layer topology information and routing message exchange. Multipath service discovery differs from multipath(More)
Two-dimensional (2-D) microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) optical switches can be constructed by arranging the MEMS-actuated micromirrors as an array. We consider here the switching capability, routing, and optimization of the rectangular array interconnection on which the capability and efficiency of 2-D MEMS switches depend. The switching capability of(More)
Next-generation wavelength routing optical networks requiring optical cross connects (OXC) in the network have the ability to direct optical signals from any input interface to suitable output interfaces by configuring their internal embedded optical switch matrices. Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switches are regarded as the most promising(More)
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Web services (WS) are service-oriented architectures developed separately for service delivery in the next generation telecommunications, and IT-centric computing environment, respectively. In order to harness services in both of these platforms and to facilitate combining and blending of services, we propose an integrated(More)
