Field-Trial: Latency in Transpacket switches

TrackTrack 2 (Auditorium 2)
DescriptionIntegrated hybrid optical networks (IHON), also known as fusion networks, fuse the circuit and packet network in a time-interleaved manner without using time-slots.  
We experimentally demonstrate an Ethernet integrated hybrid network offering both an Ethernet wavelength transport and the ability to exploit vacant wavelength-capacity using statistical multiplexing without interfering with the performance of the wavelength transport. The field-trial was carried through the Uninett network in Trondheim.  
The results verify that the guaranteed circuit paths have zero packet loss, low delay and minimized packet delay variation, while the packet paths with statistically multiplexing capability increase the throughput efficiency of the wavelengths.
