    The enhanced burst-polling dynamic bandwidth allocation (EBDBA) method is proposed to support broadband access networks based on quality of service for Ethernet passive optical networks (EPONs). EBDBA adaptively increases or decreases the minimum guaranteed bandwidth of the three traffic clasess??expedited forwarding (EF), assured forwarding (AF), and best effort (BE) traffic??according to the req...

    In this paper, we study a new class of two-dimensional codes, here called multilevel prime codes, with expanded code cardinality by relaxing the maximum cross-correlation function to any arbitrary positive integer. Besides having asymptotically optimal cardinality and zero autocorrelation sidelobes, these multilevel prime codes can be partitioned into a tree structure of multiple levels of subsets...

  • Genetic Algorithm for Joint Routing and Dimensioning of Dynamic WDM Networks

    The dynamic operation of WDM networks might lead to significant wavelength savings, when compared with their static counterpart, at the expense of facing nonzero blocking probability. Hence, efficient dimensioning (i.e., determining each link capacity) and control methods are required to operate these networks. Typically, the dimensioning of WDM networks is carried out only after the routing algor... View full abstract»

  • Optical Packet Contention Resolution Through Edge Smoothing Into Decomposed Subflows

    Motivated by the difficulty of implementing optical packet switches having large optical buffers, we propose a new, simple, and effective way of applying electronic traffic smoothing at the edge of an optical packet switched network to reduce core optical buffering requirements. A single class of service is assumed. Incoming traffic that is destined for a particular egress edge router is smoothed ... View full abstract»

  • Correlation Between Peak-to-Average Power Ratio and Four-Wave Mixing in Optical OFDM Systems

    Coherent optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexed (OFDM) systems have been shown to be vulnerable to fiber nonlinearity, four-wave mixing (FWM) in particular. Consequently, transmission of OFDM symbols with a low peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) is widely recommended. In this paper, we examine the correlation between PAR and the intensity of light generated through FWM for two different ... View full abstract»

  • Fault-Tolerance Planning in Multiradio Hybrid WirelessߝOptical Broadband Access Networks

    The wirelessߝoptical broadband-access network (WOBAN) architecture has been proposed as a flexible and cost-effective solution for future access networks. However, for WOBANs to provide geographically continuous wireless coverage it is necessary to integrate fault tolerance in the design of such networks. At the optical back end, multiple failures, having different impact levels, may be addr... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The scope of the Journal includes advances in the state-of-the-art of optical networking science, technology, and engineering. Both theoretical contributions (including new techniques, concepts, analyses, and economic studies) and practical contributions (including optical networking experiments, prototypes, and new applications) are encouraged. Subareas of interest include the architecture and design of optical networks, optical network survivability and security, software-defined optical networking, elastic optical networks, data and control plane advances, network management related innovation, and optical access networks.  Enabling technologies and their applications are suitable topics only if the results are shown to directly impact optical networking beyond simple point-to-point networks.
