Wavelength division multiplexed point-to-point transport is becoming commonplace in wide area networks. With the expectation that the next step is end-to-end networking of wavelengths (in the optical domain without conversion to electronics), there is a need for new design techniques, a new understanding of the performance issues, and a new performance evaluation methodology in such networks. This paper describes approaches to that end, summarizes research results, and points to open problems.

(2009)This paper reports a summary of the joint research activities on Optical Core Networks within the e-Photon-ONe+ project. It provides a reasonable overview of the topics considered of interest by the European research ...
Karasan, E.; Arisoylu, M. (Kluwer, 2004)We discuss the problem of designing translucent optical networks composed of restorable, transparent subnetworks interconnected via transponders. We develop an integer linear programming (ILP) formulation for partitioning ...
Karasan, E.; Goldstein, E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1998-09)In the presence of rapidly growing demand, long-haul multiwavelength lightwave networks face the increasingly critical task of not only transporting large traffic volumes, but also of restoring them in the event of failures. ...
