This paper presents a new hybrid network architecture including different transport technologies to support a wide range of services. In particular the proposed hybrid network provides three service levels, and a possible set of foreseeable services with different QoS needs is mapped into these levels to show the effectiveness of the hybrid networking in managing multi-service requests. In the switching nodes of the network, each service level is associated to a different switching technology, thus optimizing the switch implementation. In the nodes of the network, the service levels are distinguished based on optical encoding techniques, while an output collision stage manages the access to the output wavelengths. Performance studies show the effectiveness of the output collision mechanism.
