Extreme Networking: Experimental Ultra-High-Speed Networks

Time 09/29/04 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

High capacity networks providing 40 Gb/s wavelength paths are expected to enhance and accelerate academic research activities, especially in data GRID applications. During this session, experts will discuss current planning and experiments underway in Japan and in the United States on the development and deployment of ultra-high-speed, next-generation networks designed to support applications requiring 40 Gb/s and beyond.

John Fee will discuss the development of 40 Gb/s technology including past technical field and laboratory trials; the drivers for 40 Gb/s; and possible implementation in the optical network.

Researchers at the National Institute of Informatics (NII) and Japan Telecom have been studying next generation all-optical network technology including
40 Gb/s-based transmission systems as part of the SuperSINET Project. Mikio Yagi will present recent research results regarding dynamic chromatic
dispersion compensation in the case of GMPLS-based 40 Gb/s wavelength path reconfiguration and all-optical 2R-regeneration (regeneration and reshaping) systems.
