Abstract

This paper focuses on the control architecture and the enabling technologies for the Ethernet-supported Internet protocol-over-wavelength-division-multiplexing metropolitan area networks. We present the general architecture of an access node of such networks and propose solutions to facilitate the essential system functionalities. The aim is to render the flexible and high-capacity metropolitan network, which provides service provisioning improvement and resource utilization efficiency for the packet-dominated data traffic. Specifically, an enhanced address resolution protocol is proposed to reduce the call setup latency and the signaling overhead associated with the address probing procedure, a burst-based transmission mechanism is adopted to improve the network throughput and resource utilization efficiency, and a wavelength allocation algorithm is investigated to provide flexible bandwidth multiplexing with fairness and high scalability. Theoretical analysis and simulations are conducted to evaluate the performance of our algorithms, demonstrating that the proposed architecture and technologies deliver substantial transport performance improvement with efficient network resource utilization.
