Study of optical control plane for translucent WDM networks

Study of optical control plane for translucent WDM networks In this article, we concentrate on the study of control plane and management approaches for translucent WDM networks. A hybrid optical control plane (OCP) is proposed, which needs the extensions of both routing and signaling protocol, to combine the best features of routing-based information updating and signaling-based data collection and path evaluation. Simulations are conducted to compare hybrid OCP with two existing control architectures: signaling-based OCP and routing-based OCP. Numerical results show that hybrid OCP exhibits a lower blocking probability than the other approaches, and also minimizes the stability and scalability problems under various traffic conditions.
