    We propose and experimentally demonstrate overlaying an independent channel on a gigabit passive optical network (GPON). This has application to carry data collected from wireless sensor networks used for environmental monitoring on a public network. The overlaid channel, which utilizes highly stretched pulses to carry the low-rate sensor data, is unnoticeable in the presence of ordinary data chan... View full abstract»

    We propose hierarchical optical path cross-connect (HOXC) system architectures that utilize wavelength selective switches (WSSs) and waveband selective switches. They are very compactly implemented compared to single-layer optical cross-connect systems that use only WSSs. We have developed a prototype of one of the proposed HOXC architectures and experimentally confirmed its feasibility. View full abstract»

    In this paper we study slotted ALOHA random access optical code division multiple access packet-switching networks with a chip-level receiver structure. We use generalized optical orthogonal codes (GOOCs) and the overlapping pulse position modulation (OPPM) signaling technique to improve system performance. The impact of physical layer parameters such as the GOOC cross-correlation value and the OP... View full abstract»

    Wavelength division multiplexing rings are now capable of supporting more than 100 wavelengths over a single fiber. Conventional link and path formulations for the routing and wavelength assignment problem are inefficient due to the inherent symmetry in wavelength assignment and the fact that the problem size increases fast with the number of wavelengths. Although a formulation based on maximal in... View full abstract»

    The impact of optical OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) with adaptive modulation on reducing the filter concatenation effect is investigated, for the first time, in intensity modulation and direct-detection transparent metropolitan/regional network systems incorporating cascaded reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs). The ROADMs considered are based on different opti... 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.
