Samenvatting

This paper proposes a novel polymorphic framework for optical networking as an efficient solution for service differentiation at the optical layer. We show that by simultaneously supporting several optical switching paradigms over a single physical network, efficient and flexible optical networks can be built, and moreover, a seamless evolution path from optical circuit-switched (OCS) towards optical packet-switched (OPS) networks is provided. We present the polymorphic paradigm and the motivation for this new concept. We also introduce two novel polymorphic architectures, one based on optical circuit switching paradigms and a second one based on optical label-switched networks with the capacity of express lightpath provisioning. The support for class of service differentiation and a possible seamless evolution toward optical packet-switched networks is briefly presented.
