Network design and protection in light-trail networks

Abstract

The light-trail architecture provides a novel solution to address IP-centric issues at the optical layer. By incorporating drop and continue functionality, overlaid with a light-weight control protocol, light-trails enable efficient sharing of network resources, support subwavelength traffic and minimize network costs. In this work, we investigate the… (More)
