Abstract

Feature Issue on Optical Ethernet (OE)

Optical Ethernet (OE) architectures transport IP packets directly over the optical layer by providing a specific Layer 2 framing. Although the architectures represent a simple and low-cost solution, the limiting factor for their widespread deployment is represented by the lack of some efficient operation, administration, and maintenance (OA&M) features, such as resilience. Optical layer protection represents a low-cost resilience scheme for OE links. We present the experimental results of low-cost protection implementations that are based on different failure detection and failure protection activation schemes for IP-over-OE networks. Specifically, a dedicated span protection scheme and an evolution for shared protection based on generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) signaling in transparent domains is presented. Experimental results show that recovery times in the millisecond range are achieved.
