Project: Optical Networking and Node Architectures.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-02 – 31-DEC-05
- A next-generation of transport networks, based on optical techniques, will be studied. The project will research several options from circuit switched to packet switched optical networks. Also the integration with IP-based networks will be studied. The objectives are scientific (routing algorithms, buffering strategies, planning algorithms), as well as technological (evaluation of peer versus overlay model, technological evolution, strategic planning rules, multi-layer protoection strategies).
