Optical Packet Switching in Core Networks : Between Vision and Reality

  title={Optical Packet Switching in Core Networks : Between Vision and Reality},
  author={Tarek S. El-Bawab and Jong-Dug Shin},
The research on optical packet switching has witnessed considerable progress in the 1990s. In this article we examine the future potential of OPS in the core network by discussing this switching approach and the current status of a number of its enabling technologies. Many of these technologies are still in the stage of research and experimentation. We see that optical packet switching may be deployed in the long-term future subject to satisfaction of three main conditions/developments. First… CONTINUE READING
