Paper Abstract

Due mainly to explosive growth of data transmission fueled primarily by rapidly increasing number of ever more powerful personal computers and servers and unprecedented popularity of mobile communications, there is great pressure on network operators to keep pace with these developments by increasing throughput of their networks. This is determined by transmission capacity of access as well as inter-nodal links and by switching capabilities of the network nodes. The ultimate objective is to have latency free network able to support real time traffic as well as near real-time data communications utilizing, for example Internet Protocol. Equipment vendors and network operators are meeting these demands by their efforts to fully exploit the potential of photonic technologies both in transmission as well as in processing of signals in optical domain. State of the art in the field of photonic networks is described.
