All-optical networks are able to transport data from source to destination entirely in the optical domain. This is a departure from current optical networks that rely on optical-electrical-optical (OEO) conversion at each intermediate connection node to route data properly. The opacity inherent in traditional networks is costly in terms of limiting bandwidth and increasing switching complexity. MPLS, OBS and OPS have been proposed as solutions for realizing an all-optical network. MPLS and OBS… CONTINUE READING
