    Optical networks employing wavelength-division multiplexing and wavelength routing are potential candidates for future wide area networks. Because these networks are prone to component failures and carry a large volume of traffic, maintaining a high level of service availability is an important issue. This article discusses providing tolerance capability to the optical layer in WDM-based transport... View full abstract»

    Asynchronous, high-speed multiple-access is proposed as a natural solution to achieving asynchronous, high-speed connectivity in a local area network environment. Optical CDMA is shown to be competitive with other networking technologies such as WDMA and TDMA, but has the benefit of more flexibility, simpler protocols, and no need for centralized network control. The limitations of one-dimensional... View full abstract»

    Survivability, the ability of a network to withstand and recover from failures, is one of the most important requirements of networks. Its importance is magnified in fiber optic networks with throughputs on the order of gigabits and terabits per second. This article takes a look at the techniques used to achieve survivability in traditional optical networks, and how those techniques are evolving t... View full abstract»

    The exponentially growing number of Internet users armed with emerging multimedia Internet applications is continuously thirsty for more network capacity. Wavelength-division multiplexing networks that directly support IP-the so-called IP over WDM architecture-have the appropriate characteristics to quench this bandwidth thirst. As everyday life increasingly relies on telecommunication services, u... View full abstract»

    Wavelength-division multiplexing has emerged as an important physical layer technology. Optical transmission provides a physical layer capable of carrying bits at the speed at the order of a gigabit per second. Optical burst switching is proposed to overcome the shortcomings of conventional WDM deployment, such as lack of fine bandwidth granularity in wavelength routing and electronic speed bottle...

    As the phenomenal advance in optical WDM networking technologies continues, optical WDM network equipment has been deployed not only in backbone networks, but also in regional, metropolitan, and access networks. It is widely believed that a major component of the next-generation Internet will be an IP-based optical network employing WDM. WDM wavelength routing and signaling have become an active r...
