ICCCN 2010 – Track on Optical and Backbone Networks (OBN)

Advances in optical technologies have enabled high-capacity low-cost optical networks that are widely deployed in access, metro, backbone, storage, and grid networks. Dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) is the solution of choice in backbone networks, while coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM) is used in metro and access networks. Many challenges remain in the design and operation of optical networks in backbone, metro, and access domains. In the backbone, the goal is to build cost-effective networks that are highly available and have predictable and guaranteed performance. This requires efficient optical network architectures taking advantage of optical technology and employing effective protection and restoration techniques. In the metro domain, the need to cost-effectively groom sub-wavelength demands onto WDM channels is paramount. In the access area, the objective is to provide high bandwidth to end users at low cost. Reliable and secure WDM passive optical network (WDM-PON) is a promising candidate to meet this goal. Advancing state-of-art in theory, architecture, algorithms, system design, and hardware development is needed to build networks capable of meeting the demands of current and emerging applications.
