Paper Abstract

Ultra-high speed optical time division multi-access networks, operating at single-stream data rates of 100 Gb/s, may offer unique advantages over wavelength division multiplexed systems. These advantages include providing integrated services, including packet service to high-end users, multiple quality of service levels and truly flexible bandwidth-on-demand. In this paper, we discuss architectures and technologies for implementing ultrafast TDMA networks. In addition, we discuss novel applications for the ultrafast technologies that have been developed.
