Paper Abstract

The aim of this paper is to study a hybrid optical network architecture : the loop-star topology, in which each user is linked via a star network to a selecting and switching node, while all the nodes are linked together via a loop network. This topology, which adapts to braodcast and interactive services, fits equally well to various population densities. We'll examine the various modules of the network, and we'll describe more precisely the loop and user links using frequency and wavelength multiplexing.
