Chapter 10.  Advanced MPLS Architectures

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Optical Networking—This section discusses the requirement for fiber-optic network infrastructures in which switches and routers have integrated optical interfaces and are directly connected by fiber or optical network elements, such as Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexers (DWDMs). Conventional fiber-optic systems and DWDM technology are also discussed.

  • Optical Transport Network Elements—Technical details of Optical Transport Network (OTN) elements such as optical amplifiers, wavelength converters, Optical Add Drop Multiplexers (OADMs), and optical cross-connect switches are discussed in this section.

  • Multiprotocol Lambda Switching—Multiprotocol Lambda Switching ...
