Implementation of Burstponder Card for Ethernet Grooming in Light-trail WDM Networks


A light-trail is a generalization of a lightpath such that multiple nodes can take part in communication along the path. A light-trail is a good candidate for optical layer traffic grooming. In this paper we investigate the grooming aspect of light-trails from a sub-system perspective. We introduce a new sub-system called burstponder card that enables… (More)
