Light-trails are a promising candidate for grooming of traffic in the optical layer. We investigated the performance of light-trails via theory, simulation and experiment focusing on its efficiency. Introduction The growth of IP communication induces network dynamism that requires the optical layer to provide a high degree of re-configurability. Reconfigurable networks can be further classified as: being able to juxtapose a virtual topology on a given physical topology and to provide dynamic… CONTINUE READING
