All-Optical label swapping empolying optical logia gates in network nodes


Acronym: LASAGNE
Project type: European

Project description:
Future IP-based all optical networks will require technologies to enable packet routing at Terabit/s bitrates. All-optical label swapping (AOLS) is a type of optical packet switching that is intended to solve the potential mismatch between fibre capacity and router packet forwarding capacity. To date packet label processing has been carried out at the electrical domain (for example, IST-STOLAS or IST-LABELS).
