In this paper, we present a new integrated optical network architecture called polymorphous, agile and transparent optical networks (PATON) which combines different resource scheduling schemes based on polymorphous optical burst switching (POBS) suitable for a variety of applications and services, and address several key technical issues related to the control and management of PATON. These issues include traffic adaptation and grooming, signaling and control packet format, polymorphic control for resource scheduling, and extentions to GMPLS. The resulting PATON compares favorably with other existing approaches presented in our related work [X. Liu et al., 2006].
