Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the Optical Cross-Connect (OXC) Management Control System Architecture, which has the scalability and robust maintenance and provides the distributed managing environment in the optical transport network. The OXC system we are developing, which is divided into the hardware and the internal and external software for the OXC system, is made up the OXC subsystem with the Optical Transport Network (OTN) sub layers-hardware and the optical switch control system, the signaling control protocol subsystem performing the User-to-Network Interface (UNI) and Network-to-Network Interface (NNI) signaling control, the Operation Administration Maintenance & Provisioning (OAM&P) subsystem, and the network management subsystem. And the OXC management control system has the features that can support the flexible expansion of the optical transport network, provide the connectivity to heterogeneous external network elements, be added or deleted without interrupting OAM&P services, be remotely operated, provide the global view and detail information for network planner and operator, and have Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) based the open system architecture adding and deleting the intelligent service networking functions easily in future. To meet these considerations, we adopt the object oriented development method in the whole developing steps of the system analysis, design, and implementation to build the OXC management control system with the scalability, the maintenance, and the distributed managing environment. As a consequently, the componentification for the OXC operation management functions of each subsystem makes the robust maintenance, and increases code reusability. Also, the component based OXC management control system architecture will have the flexibility and scalability in nature.
