  title={esign and performance evaluation of a metro WDM storage area network with P datagram support},
  author={ernardi Pranggono and Jaafar Mohamed Hashim Elmirghani},
Storage area networks (SANs) are becoming an important part of optical MANs (metropolitan area networks). Growing storage and business-continuity needs; high-bandwidth, low latency requirements for SANs; storage infrastructure consolidation; and post-9/11 regulatory issues are among the several driving factors to push this trend. We, in this paper, consider a metro wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) SAN that allows the transmission of variable packet size such as Internet protocol (IP…

Metropolitan area packet-switched WDM networks: A survey on ring systems

The article pays close attention to the key factors that govern the throughput-delay performance of the networks, such as the source vs. destination stripping of the data packets from the ring and the a priori or a posteriori access strategies.

A Metro WDM Multi-ring Network with Variable Packet Size

This paper proposes two metro Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) ring network architectures for variable size packet traffic. Firstly, it presents the network architectures and describes their

Ringo: a Demonstrator of WDM Optical Packet Network on a Ring Topology

The RINGO network is based on a WDM optical ring, with an input queuing access protocol and multicast capabilities, and the implementation of several subsystems, such as node controller, λ-monitor and packet transmitter is investigated.

A summary of the HORNET project: a next-generation metropolitan area network

The article summarizes the accomplishments of the HORNET project, including the design, analysis, and demonstration of a metro architecture and a set of protocols that is an excellent candidate for next-generation high-capacity metro networks.

The multitoken interarrival time (MTIT) access protocol for supporting variable size packets over WDM ring network

It is shown that the MTIT protocol efficiency grows with the number of wavelengths-in agreement with today's WDM technology trends-and it is not a function of the packet size-a mandatory feature to support IP traffic.

A slotted MAC protocol for efficient bandwidth utilization in WDM metropolitan access ring networks

It is shown, through theoretical predictions and simulation results, how a simple slotted medium access control protocol can be implemented to achieve fairness between access nodes and efficient bandwidth utilization when used in a metropolitan access network.

Optical WDM Networks

This paper presents a meta-modelling architecture for smart grids that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive and expensive process of laying out and managing optical networks.

All-optical WDM multi-rings with differentiated QoS

This article considers all-optical WDM networks based on a slotted multichannel ring topology, where nodes are equipped with one fixed-wavelength receiver and one wavelength-tunable transmitter; and

A WDM network architecture with multiple receivers and a synchronous transmission protocol with constraint of data channel collision

A queueing model with receiver collision analysis for a synchronous transmission protocol which restricts data channel collision improving the system performance, is developed.
