Light-trail testbed for IP-centric applications

  title={Light-trail testbed for IP-centric applications},
  author={Nathan A. VanderHorn and Srivatsan Balasubramanian and Mani Mina and Arun K. Somani},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
The Internet transport infrastructure is evolving toward a model of high-speed routers interconnected by intelligent optical networks. In this article we review current optical networking architectures and describe a new concept proposed in A. Gumaste and I. Chlamtac [2003]: light-trails. We develop light-trails as a novel and amenable control and management solution to address IP-centric communication problems at the optical layer. We implement a testbed to demonstrate light-trail feasibility… CONTINUE READING
