Hotspot traffic is common in metro ring networks connecting access networks with backbone networks, and these metro rings are also expected to support a mix of unicast, multicast, and broadcast traffic. Shortest path (SP) routing, as employed in the IEEE 802.17 Resilient Packet Ring (RPR), is widely considered for metro rings as it maximizes spatial reuse and, thus, the achievable packet throughput (capacity) for uniform traffic. In this paper, we analyze the capacity of bidirectional optical… CONTINUE READING
