To facilitate this enormous transmission volume, high-capacity and high-speed network nodes become inevitable in the optical network.</p> <p>Wideband switching, WDM switching, optical burst switching (OBS), and optical packet switching (OPS) are promising technologies for harnessing the bandwidth of WDM optical fiber networks in a highly flexible and efficient manner. As a number of key optical component technologies approach maturity, photonics in switching is becoming an increasingly attractive and practical solution for the next-generation of optical networks.</p> <p>The scope of this special issue is focused on the technology and architecture of optical switching nodes, including the architectural and algorithmic aspects of high-speed optical networks.</p> <h2>Scope of Submission</h2> <p>The scope of the papers includes, but is not limited to, the following topics: <ul> <li>WDM node architectures and technologies</li> <li>Novel device technologies enabling photonics in switching, such as optical switch fabrics, optical memory, and wavelength conversion</li> <li>Routing protocols</li> <li>WDM switching and routing</li> <li>Quality of service</li> <li>Performance measurement and evaluation</li> <li>Next-generation optical networks: architecture, signaling, and control</li> <li>Traffic measurement and field trials</li> <li>Waveband switching <ul> <li>Switch/OXC architecture</li> <li>Waveband assignment, grooming, and conversion</li> <li>Performance measurements, modelingm, and evaluation</li> </ul></li> <li>Optical burst and packet switching</li> <li>OBS/OPS node architectures</li> <li>Burst/packet scheduling and routing algorithms</li> <li>Contention resolution/avoidance strategies</li> <li>Services and applications for OBS/OPS (e.g., grid networks, storage-area networks, etc.)</li> <li>Burst assembly and ingress traffic shaping</li> <li>Hybrid OBS/TDM or OBS/wavelength routing</li> </ul> </p> <div class="p"> <h2>Manuscript Submission</h2> To submit to this special issue, follow the normal procedure for submission to JON and select ``Photonics in Switching' in the features indicator of the online submission form.
