Designed to help readers understand the very latest optical developments, technologies, architectures, and market trends driving the next-generation network, this comprehensive report of all-optical networks (AON) is a critical resource for any communications company that hopes to tackle today's optical networking challenge. The future of the AON remains uncertain, but the next-generation optical network promises to provide the bandwidth flexibility, reliability, and network-management functions required to enable end-to-end wavelength services.The second feature of the proposed architecture is that the OP-level restoration is realized at the service layersa#39; function such as SONET restoration or IP/MPLS restoration. ... Basically, the design of the OPXC depends on the speed and frequency of the OP switching . ... In the simplest case, OPXC may be replaced by manual connection at the fiber distribution frame for a semipermanent OP connectionanbsp;...
