Control Plane Functions and Multiple Connection Method in Switched Optical Network
In this article, we present a multiple connection method for a optical switching architecture and discuss the control plane to connection. In optical network, there are three function planes and every plane has its important role. Fast provisioning enables bandwidth on demand service, where a user or its proxy can directly request a connection by using appropriate signaling via the user-network interface. A call may embody any number of underlying connections, including zero. Benefits of this separation include supporting such optical services as scheduled bandwidth on demand, diverse circuit provisioning, or bundled connection.
