Traffic Grooming in Statistically Shared Optical Networks


We investigate the characteristics and performance of architectures that allow statistical sharing of wavelengths in the optical layer. The bandwidth of a light-wave circuit can be shared in the optical layer by multiple nodes that are along a linear path in a network through the inclusion of simple but flexible hardware overlaid with control software. We… (More)
