We propose a sublambda traffic-grooming scheme on wavelength-division-multiplexing ring networks, named optical burst transport. The network protocol and architecture are designed to support dynamic bandwidth allocation, which is more reasonable for bursty data traffic. To verify our network protocol and architecture, we build a testbed which supports burst-mode transmission. Also, we transmit streaming video over Ethernet as an application.
