Paper Abstract

"Agile All-Photonic Networks" (AAPN) is the theme of a Canadian research collaboration. An AAPN is a wavelengthdivision- multiplexed network that consists of several overlaid stars formed by edge nodes that aggregate traffic, interconnected by bufferless optical core nodes that perform fast switching in order to provide bandwidth allocation in sub-wavelength granularity. Specific issues addressed in this context are (a) efficient bandwidth allocation, (b) routing of MPLS flows over the AAPN, (c) allocation of protection paths, and (d) development of a demonstration prototype. This paper high-light research results and design choices related to these issues.
