Architectures & system technologies for intelligent photonic packet routers

Grant number: DP0345939


The photonic packet switching in future all-optical IP centric networks can provide the much needed bandwidth granularity and optimal data transport architectures. Through the adaptation of multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) compatible photonic label switching concepts, photonic packet routers can be easily realised. As part of this project we will develop subsystem technologies for header processing with integrated ability to perform optical signal monitoring will be made. Based on these studies, optimal novel intelligent photonic router architectures incorporating these technologies will be developed and demonstrated. Performance optimisation will be carried out through computer modelli..
