Abstract

<div style="text-align:center"> <h1>Call for Papers: Transmission in Optically Transparent Core Networks</h1> <h2>Guest Feature Editors</h2> <h3>Dan Kilper and Rich Jensen, <i>Coordinating Associate Editors</i><br/> Klaus Petermann and Miroslav Karasek, <i>Guest Feature Editors</i> </h3> <p>Submission deadline: 15 June 2007 [Extended to 20 July 2007]</p> </div> <br/> <p>Optically transparent networks in which optical transport signals are routed uninterrupted through multiple nodes have long been viewed as an important evolutionary step in fiber optic communications. More than a decade of research and development on transparent network technologies together with the requisite traffic growth has culminated in the recent deployment of commercial optically transparent systems. Although many of the traditional research goals of optical transmission remain important, optical transparency introduces new challenges. Greater emphasis is placed on system efficiency and control. The goal of minimizing signal terminations, which has been pursued through increasing reach and channel capacity, also can be realized through wavelength routing techniques. Rather than bounding system operation by rigid engineering rules, the physical layer is controlled and managed by automation tools. Many static signal impairments become dynamic due to network reconfiguration and transient fault events. Recently new directions in transmission research have emerged to address transparent networking problems. This special issue of the Journal of Optical Networking will examine the technologies and theory underpinning transmission in optically transparent core networks, including both metropolitan and long haul systems. </p> <h2>Scope of Submission</h2> <p>The special issue editors are soliciting high-quality original research papers related to transmission in optically transparent core networks. Although this does not include edge networks such as access or enterprise networks, core networks that have access capabilities will be considered in scope as will topics related to the interworking between core and edge networks. The core network topics suitable for inclusion in this feature issue are:</p> <ul> <li>Optically transparent system design issues, transmission experiments, and field trials</li> <li>Optically transparent network architectures and topologies</li> <li>Dispersion management in reconfigurable and mesh systems</li> <li>Optically transparent network device and sub-system performance, design, characterization and control, including: amplifiers, transmitters, receivers, switches, add/drop multiplexers</li> <li>Transient and fault management</li> <li>Physical layer system control</li> <li>Monitoring and compensation to support transparency</li> <li>Wavelength routing and planning as they relate to physical layer transmission</li> <li>Hardware cost and configuration optimization for optically transparent networks</li> </ul> <p> To submit to this special issue, follow the normal procedure for submission to JON and select "TTCN" in the features indicator 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 "TTCN." </p> <p>Additional information can be found on the JON website: <a href="http://www.osa-jon.org/journal/jon/author.cfm">http://www.osa-jon.org/journal/jon/author.cfm</a>. </p> <p> <i>Submission Deadline: 15 June 2007</i></p>
