FLAMINGO (flexible multiwavelength optical local access network supporting multimedia broadband services) is a research project supported by the Dutch Technology Foundation, STW. We describe the architecture for the all-optical wavelength-and-time-slotted MAN. Key aspects of this architecture include all-optical packet switching, the ability to put IP packets directly over WDM and the possibility of interfacing with any heterogeneous network.
