Paper Abstract

As many kinds of media converge to the Internet, the backbone will face new demands not only in terms of bandwidth, but also in terms of services. Therefore it is certain that Internet will evolve into IP-over-WDM based all-optical network. Obviously, the optical router will be a crucial network device. In the paper, we propose a practical architecture of optical router. Based on all-optical labeled burst switching, this architecture supports all-optical edge-to-edge data routing and transport services with transparent data rate and format, and simplifying protocol and operations. From the viewpoint of practicality, some key issues during the design have been studied and analyzed, and corresponding feasible solutions to them are put forward respectively. Finally an experimental system and results are shown.
