Re: Optical Crossconnects and IP
It seems that the goal is to apply IP packets right onto the lambda windows. But without any ability to provide IP QoS, it seems like a point of diminishing return. Hop-by-hop routing is on its way out....and not soon enough. As for reinventing the virtual circuit, I don't think we can get much lower than this. -tm Vadim Antonov <[email protected]> wrote > >> ** Disclaimer; I work for a vendor: PLURIS, but this question concerns a >> personal curiosity that I have about OXCs. ** > >Disclaimer: I do not work for a vendor: PLURIS > >> I also don't >> see much NSP participation in the relevant standards bodies about signaling >> in optical networks. > >Probably because the said standards bodies (and on-demand fiber capacity >allocation in general) have little relevance to the NSPs and Internet >backbones in general? > >--vadim > >PS I keep wondering why people keep reinventing virtual circuits.
