Experimental demonstration of an all-optical routing node for multihop wavelength routed networks

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Wavelength-routed multihop all-optical networks have been proposed for scalable data-rate and format independent transport layers.1 For packet communications, network interface nodes must be able to process headers and switch packets either to a local host or forward them to another node. The forwarding operation involves packet-by-packet wavelength conversion and switching to an outgoing network link with the preservation of packet destination information or updating of a virtual channel identifier.
