Abstract

There is a general agreement that the future infrastructure for broadband communications will consist of Automatically Switched Optical Networks (ASONs) controlled by the Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) control plane. Due to the convergence of most services on the Internet Protocol (IP) layer, ASON/GMPLS networks need to provide transport for a variety of applications having different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. This implies that the Differentiated Service paradigm, which improves the QoS in pure IP networks, needs to be extended to the new underlying infrastructure. This article proposes and compares three schemes for the service differentiation in IP/MPLS over ASON/GMPLS networks. Simulation results demonstrate that a fair trade-off between QoS and resource utilization is achieved when combining routing policy differentiation (RPD), virtual topology differentiation (VTD), and virtual topology sharing (VTS) techniques. The RPD technique decides on the multilayer routing policy to apply depending on the Class of Service (CoS). The VTD technique transports different CoS over different independent virtual topologies. The VTS technique introduces a certain degree of resource sharing among the different virtual topologies.
