Paper Abstract

`All optical networks' are future networks in which the path between end nodes remains entirely optical. This new kind of networks is well suited to fulfill the growing demand on bandwidth. One of the popular methods to operate all optical networks is the `deflection' principle, different from recent methods such as diffusion and virtual circuits used in Internet and ATM networks respectively. In this paper, we focus on the performance of all optical deflection networks in a metropolitan area of the `Manhattan Street' type. Our investigation is conducted using both analytical and simulation methods.
