Paper Abstract

The need to provide QoS-guaranteed services in the WDM optical networks is becoming increasingly important because of a variety of candidate client networks (e.g., IP, ATM, SONET/SDH) and the requirement for QoS-delivery within the transport layers. This article addresses the QoS problem and presents a framework of QoS provisioning in the WDM optical network. We first characterize the QoS problem in the WDM optical network by comparing with that in the traditional networks. Then we propose a QoS service model in the optical domain called extended differentiated optical services (E-DoS) model based on a set of optical parameters that captures the quality, the reliability and the priority of an optical connection. Each component of the E-DoS model has been analyzed in detail in this article.
