Efficient multi‐layer traffic grooming in an IP/MPLS‐over‐optical network

Efficient multi‐layer traffic grooming in an IP/MPLS‐over‐optical network Traffic grooming in meshed optical networks is an important research topic due to the vast difference between the bandwidth requirements of IP/MPLS traffic demands and the capacity of a wavelength. In this paper, we present, evaluate and compare several traffic grooming strategies for a multi‐layer IP/MPLS‐over‐meshed optical network, which take into account the unidirectional nature of IP. Applying a proper multi‐layer grooming algorithm also implicates designing a cost‐efficient IP/MPLS topology suited for the offered traffic. This study shows that a very promising traffic grooming strategy is the one that deploys a sophisticated capacity installation algorithm in combination with the idea of charging the IP/MPLS layer for the capacity it consumes in the optical layer. Such an iterative, charging‐based approach allows significant savings in the overall network design cost compared to a more simple approach. It also allows gradually installing extra line‐systems in the optical network as traffic increases.

Abstract

Traffic grooming in meshed optical networks is an important research topic due to the vast difference between the bandwidth requirements of IP/MPLS traffic demands and the capacity of a wavelength. In this paper, we present, evaluate and compare several traffic grooming strategies for a multi‐layer IP/MPLS‐over‐meshed optical network, which take into account the unidirectional nature of IP. Applying a proper multi‐layer grooming algorithm also implicates designing a cost‐efficient IP/MPLS topology suited for the offered traffic. This study shows that a very promising traffic grooming strategy is the one that deploys a sophisticated capacity installation algorithm in combination with the idea of charging the IP/MPLS layer for the capacity it consumes in the optical layer. Such an iterative, charging‐based approach allows significant savings in the overall network design cost compared to a more simple approach. It also allows gradually installing extra line‐systems in the optical network as traffic increases. Copyright © 2005 AEIT.
