Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose the idea of wavelength synchronization and construct a novel multiwavelength network--a wavelength synchronized network called Synchronous Wavelength Optical Network (SWONet). Unlike most of the proposed networks featuring distributed light source architectures, the SWONet adopts centralized light source architecture to achieve wavelength synchronization. The SWONet shows many advantages resulting from wavelength synchronization; it also has profound implications on future fiber networking. Specifically, it is a feasible way toward a standard multiwavelength optical network in the future.
