Abstract

We present a solution for transport of Internet Protocol (IP) packets over optical networks. The protocol relies heavily on the data link and physical layer of the proposed standard 10-Gbit/s Ethernet. The architecture is able to perform optical multiplexing and forwarding of asynchronous packets such as those generated by classical Ethernet devices.
