Metropolitan and access network architecture design for optical flow switching

Abstract

In this work, we provide design concepts of efficient physical and lightpath topology architectures for a LAN/MAN all-optical network that support optical flow switching. We found good architectures are coupled intimately with media access control protocol designs and must be optimized jointly. Two architectures that represent extreme cases were examined… (More)
