WDM-Based Packet Networks

  title={WDM-Based Packet Networks},
plexing. (WDM)-based packet networks. In the near term, such networks are likely to consist of WDM links connected using some form of electronic mul-tiplexing. The focus of this article is on the joint design of the electronic and optical layer with the objective of simplifying the network and reducing the protocol stack. To that end, we discuss the benefits of optical flow switching, network reconfiguration, traffic grooming, and optical layer protection. We also discuss the state of all… CONTINUE READING
