Paper Abstract

Researches about infrastructure and applications of next generation Internet is one of the most comprehensive research fields in recent years, IP over WDM is envisioned as the best candidate for next generation Internet. Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) was proposed as an excellent control plane technology for the integration of IP and WDM, which can achieve the on-demand provisioning and management of network resources. And optical burst switching (OBS) is considered as a promising switch paradigm for next generation Internet, which can not only provide statistical multiplexing of network bandwidth resources, but also circumvent the bottleneck of electronic switching effectively. Therefore, how to integrate GMPLS into OBS network and use GMPLS to improve performances of OBS networks becomes an important research direction and have received comprehensive concerns from many research institutions and organizations. This article proposes a new kind of OBS network namely GMPLS-based OBS network, describes its general framework and some work mechanisms, and gives node functional modules and the control plane software components. Some issues related to network management also are discussed.
