    Lightpath reconfiguration is a networking task that can be performed in order to improve resource utilization. The lightpath reconfiguration problem becomes nontrivial when a new set of lightpaths requires the release of resources previously seized by the (working) lightpaths currently in place, but, in order to ensure continuity of the traffic flow, the working lightpaths cannot be torn down befo...

    This paper, for the first time to our knowledge, introduces a power control technique for radio-over-fiber (RoF) downlinks in frequency division multiplexing (FDM) cellular communication systems. The power control technique, which has been widely used in traditional wireless systems, is to radiate sufficient power to establish an adequate service for a particular distance. Due to RoF link nonlinea... View full abstract»

    The provision of service differentiation is an important aspect that has to be considered for the definition of next-generation networks due to the high heterogeneity of the traffic that will dominate networks in the near future. This is particularly important in the context of optical burst switching, which is emerging as one of the strong candidate technologies for the next-generation optical In... View full abstract»

    Passive optical networks (PONs) are being widely considered as a means to implement fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and deliver broadband access to business and home users. However, technical and consequently regulatory and economic complexities arise in light of their deployment. In this paper, an evaluation of the business prospects of time division multiplexed (TDM) and wavelength division multiplexed... View full abstract»

  • Nonlinear Predictor-Based Dynamic Resource Allocation Over Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) Networks: A Control Theoretical Approach

    Most broadband access networks such as passive optical networks (PONs) adopt the point-to-multipoint (P2MP) topology. One critical issue in such networks is the upstream resource management and allocation mechanism. Nonlinear predictor-based dynamic resource allocation (NLPDRA) schemes for improving the P2MP network upstream transmission efficiency have been investigated in an ad hoc manner. In th...

    We develop a computational framework to study the impact of burst assembly algorithms on the byte loss rate (ByLR) of an OBS network under bursty (ON-OFF) IP traffic input. First we propose a computational method to analyze the characteristics of assembled bursts in terms of burst length and/or burst assembly time distribution under timer-based, burst-threshold-based, and dual-threshold-based burs...

  • Virtual Topology Design for Minimizing Network Diameter and Average Hop Count in WDM Networks

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (721 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We design virtual topologies in wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks to minimize the network diameter and average hop count, where network diameter refers to the number of hops of the longest shortest path and average hop count is the average number of hops among the shortest paths of all node pairs. Such objectives are important to WDM networks, especially to those with statistical mul... View full abstract»

  • Diversity–Multiplexing Trade-Off in Coherent Free-Space Optical Systems With Multiple Receivers

    In this paper, from an information theory point of view, we investigate the performance of a coherent free-space optical (FSO) communication system with multiple receive apertures over atmospheric turbulence channels. Our study builds on a recently introduced statistical model that characterizes the combined effects of turbulence-induced wavefront distortion and amplitude fluctuation in coherent r...

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.
