New Structure of Communication System for WDM Optical Network
In recent years, optical network has made great progress. Optical networking architects were concerned with medium access control protocols for optical switching, the combination of wavelength conversion, and optimum forms of network. How to apply the simple high-speed transfer function of the optical network node to the IP network is an important issue in achieving an IP and optical integrated network. In this paper, we present a new node structure which has a new function. Adding new nodes to a optical network based on this new design, we can make a connection to different network. It is important to provide solutions for various requirements such as integrated optical network scalability and support for various types of networks in an optical network.
