Paper Abstract

We describe the design and performance of a wide-area all-optical network. An improved model of the benefits of wavelength changers in all-optical mesh networks is presented and comparisons are made to simulations. The model is shown to be accurate for a moderate number of wavelengths and a small blocking probability for a variety of networks.
