Paper Abstract

This paper examines the multi-protocol lambda switching approach to support IP over WDM networks. The MPL(ambda)S approach extends a common control plane to IP and optical domains based on multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) with extensions for the unique characteristics of the optical network. We investigate some practical issues related to signaling, routing, differentiated services, and survivability.
