This paper investigates the time synchronization aspect of transmission scheduling in an optically groomed data center network (OGDCN). The architecture is based on a hybrid optical-packet approach and uses broadcast domains and wavelength division multiplexing for communication. The salient feature of this architecture is that all network paths are readily available in the optical domain and there is no need for optical path establishment. A source-destination pair must tune to a predefined… CONTINUE READING
