Evolution of hybrid WDM/OCDM technology in OBS networks with optical code and wavelength conversion

Evolution of hybrid WDM/OCDM technology in OBS networks with optical code and wavelength conversion The performance of a hybrid WDM/OCDM technology is investigated under impairments of Multiple Access Interference. We employed analytical models of Optical Orthogonal Codes to evaluate the switching network resources, such as the number of optical codes carried on each wavelength. Moreover, we propose and analyze a few optical code and wavelength conversion switching architectures, in order to scale the number of codes and wavelength converters and obtain a minimum burst blocking probability. The results demonstrate that architectures comprising Sparse-Partial Optical Code Converters with Sparse-Partial Wavelength Converters provide better performance. The network resources utilization are improved with number of converters, hence reaching a better cost benefit. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals
