Submission Deadline: 1 September 2005

The Journal of Optical Networking (JON) is soliciting papers for a second feature issue on Optical Ethernet. Ethernet has evolved from a LAN technology connecting desktop computers to a universal broadband network interface. It is not only the vehicle for local data connectivity but also the standard interface for next-generation network equipment such as video servers and IP telephony. High-speed Ethernet has been increasingly assuming the volume of backbone network traffic from SONET/SDH-based circuit applications. It is clear that IP has become the universal network protocol for future converged networks, and Ethernet is becoming the ubiquitous link layer for connectivity. Network operators have been offering Ethernet services for several years. Problems and new requirements in Ethernet service offerings have been captured through previous experience. New study groups and standards bodies have been formed to address these problems. This feature issue aims at reviewing and updating the new developments and R&D efforts of high-speed Ethernet in recent years, especially those related to the field of optical networking.

Scope of Submission

The scope of the papers includes, but is not limited to, the following:
  • Ethernet PHY development
  • 10-Gbit Ethernet on multimode fiber
  • Native Ethernet transport and Ethernet on legacy networks
  • EPON
  • Ethernet OAM
  • Resilient packet ring (RPR) and Ethernet
  • QoS definition and management on Ethernet
  • Ethernet protection switching
  • Circuit emulation services on Ethernet
  • Transparent LAN service development
  • Carrier VLAN and Ethernet
  • Ethernet MAC frame expansion
  • Ethernet switching
  • High-speed Ethernet applications
  • Economic models of high-speed Ethernet services
  • Ethernet field deployment and standard activities

Manuscript Submission

To submit to this special issue, follow the normal procedure for submission to JON, indicating "Optical Ethernet feature" in the "Comments" field of the online submission form. For all other questions relating to this feature issue, please send an e-mail to jon@osa.org, subject line "Optical Ethernet."
