Paper Abstract

To natively support the bursty IP datagrams over all-optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) networks, the Optical Burst Switching (OBS) WDM network has been proposed as a suitable architecture for future optical Internet backbone networks. However, managing the OBS network will be complicated due to the scale of the networks and the correlation between different technology layers. This paper presents an information model for the OBS core node, from the network-element view, to describe the management information flows between the optical burst layer and the traditional WDM transport layer, and how to model them using various Managed Objects (MOs). We also provide the structure of Management Information Base (MIB) used in SNMP management interface for managing the parameters identified at different layers.
