SummaryThe development of key technologies for high-capacity optical transmission has made possible transmission experiments with very high data rates and a large number of wavelength channels. Based on the recent development of enabling technology, optical network functionality has made progress from simple point-to-point wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) links to automatically switched optical networks. In the future, dynamic burst-switched and packet-switched photonic networks may be…
