Abstract

We propose a novel iOPEN (integrated OPtical EtherNet) architecture to support dynamic reconfiguration of lightpaths between Ethernet switches and study the network control and operation algorithms and their performance. The iOPEN network maintains the Ethernet frame forwarding features and takes advantage of current available optical network technologies, and extends the Ethernet network technology and services to the metro area. The frame forwarding mechanisms and network topology configurations adapt to changes in traffic conditions for guaranteed QoS and efficient resource utilization. The simulation results from simple network configuration indicate that the iOPEN architecture dynamically reconfigures logical topology of the Ethernet switches in response to traffic changes and utilizes resources more efficiently.
