Paper Abstract

Recently, researchers have investigated the use of photonic circuit switching, or optical time division multiplexing, as a mean to sub-divide the bandwidth of wavelength channels in Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing networks. In this paper, we present our study on the use of optical buffer in a photonic circuit switching network and how routing and time-slot assignment can be used to optimize the effectiveness of optical buffer. We will also discuss how photonic circuit switching may be integrated into the emerging IP-centric control and management scheme of GMPLS.
