Application of GMPLS Technology and All-Optical Signal Regeneration Technology to Next-Generation Network (NGN)
Time 05/04/05 03:00PM-04:00PM
Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) is expected to allow us to build dynamic IP optical networks. To realize dynamic IP optical networks, the interaction between the measurement plane and the GMPLS control plane has to be considered for assuring total quality of service (QoS). From physical layer aspects, transparent transmission capabilities have to be considered. All-optical signal regeneration technology is essential for the transparency since the technology is able to provide signal regeneration capability only in an optical domain.
National Institute of Informatics (NII) and Japan Telecom have been studying the next generation GMPLS applications and all-optical networking technology under SuperSINET Project.
In this talk, we present two talks regarding recent research results. One is regarding the GMPLS application for quality assurance in which the IP-level quality measurement and the optical-level GMPLS path control are integrated. The other is regarding the application of all-optical 2R-regeneration (regeneration and reshaping) and 3R-regeneration (regeneration, reshaping, and retiming) technology to the all-optical network for client signal quality assurance.
