Paper Abstract

In this paper, a communication protocol has been designed for the two-layer scalable optical interconnection network (TSOINet) designed in Tianjin University. The communication protocol has been designed based on TCP/IP (transmission control protocol/internet protocol) protocol. But it is more efficient than TCP/IP for data transmission in TSOINet. An auxiliary channel has been introduced in TSOINet for transmission of the communication status messages among the sub-layer rings. Many network management functions, such as flow control, hand shaking, etc., can be achieved via the auxiliary channel, so the communication overheads can be decreased. The performance of the communication protocol has been evaluated compared to TCP/IP protocol for data transmission in TSOINet.
