Abstract:This paper presents a new idea for the management of lambda-connections in optical networks. The idea consists of making multi-service optical switches responsible for automatically detecting IP flows at the packet-level, creating lambda-connections for them, and moving them to the optical-level. In addition to that, they are also in charge of tearing down the connections when no longer needed. This new idea is the result of 1 year of research work at the University of Twente (UT) and it is aimed at resulting in a Ph.D. thesis by the end of 4 years of Ph.D. research.
