  • Opsquare: A flat DCN architecture based on flow-controlled optical packet switches

    Aiming at solving the scaling issues of bandwidth and latency in current hierarchical data center network (DCN) architectures, we propose and investigate a novel optical flat DCN architecture in which the number of interconnected ToRs scales as the square of the optical packet switches' (OPS) port count (OPSquare). The proposed flat DCN architecture consists of two parallel interand intra-cluster networks that are built on a single-hop OPS with nanosecond time and wavelength switching for efficient statistical multiplexing operations. Fast optical flow control is implemented for solving packet contentions that may occur at the buffer-less optical switches. The performance of OPSquare DCN in terms of scalability, packet loss, latency, and throughput is assessed by a numerical simulation employing OMNeT++ under realistic data center (DC) traffic. The results report a server-to-server latency of less than 2/ μs (including packet retransmission), a packet loss <;10-5at a load of 0.4, and aDC size of 10,240 servers with a ToR buffer size equal to 50 KB for all traffic patterns. Moreover, the cost and power consumption of the OPSquare DCN have been studied and compared with fat-tree DCN based on electrical switches and H-LION connected by an arrayed wave guide grating router (AWGR). The results indicate 23.8% and 39% cost and power savings, respectively, for the OPSquare DCN supporting 160,000 servers with respect to the fat-tree DCN. The OPSquare has a cost saving of 56% compared with H-LION for a 160,000-server DCN.

At 1310nm wavelength, any optical network unit (ONU) in one group can transmit the uplink signal to OLT and any ONU in the other group. This realizes communication between two ONUs to handle the east-west traffic directly. Compared with conventional point-to-multipoint passive optical network, simulation results show the node can reduce the average frame latency evidently and handle traffic burst well.

  • Spun-Related Effects on Optical Properties of Spun Silica Optical Fibers

    Spun-related effects on optical properties of silica optical fibers have been investigated experimentally. In addition to the previously known spun effects on polarization mode dispersion (PMD), we observed previously unknown spun- related effects on mode field diameter (MFD), cutoff wavelength and Verdet constant. These effects are significant at highly spun (short pitch length) fibers which are draw at high rotation rate and low drawing speed. By fabricating and testing spun fibers of varying pitch lengths, we found that MFD, cutoff wavelength and PMD all decrease as the pitch length decreases, while the fiber loss increases significantly when the pitch length is lower than 1.5 mm. We have also investigated the spun and annealing effects on Verdet constant of spun fibers. Our experimental results reveal that, by increasing the spun rate (i.e., decreasing the spun pitch length), the Verdet constant is increased appreciably. One relevant finding is that the increase of Verdet constant of spun fibers after annealing is inversely proportional to the pitch length. The overall Verdet constant increase, due to spun and annealing processes, can reach about 4.5% at 1550 nm wavelength in a spun fiber with 1.0 mm pitch.

  • A novel optical encoding scheme based on spectral phase encoding for secure optical communication

    We propose a novel optical encoding scheme based on spectral phase encoding, in which optical codes are randomly selected from a code set for code hopping. The security performance is analysed. It can achieve the identical security level with short hopping pattern, efficiently improving the system resources.

  • Joint optical switching and residual dispersion compensation using wavelength selective switch-based reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer

    In this paper, we have experimentally demonstrated joint optical switching and residual dispersion compensation using wavelength selective switch (WSS)-based reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (RODAM). It is shown that a WSS- based ROADM can effectively compensate the residual chromatic dispersion without employing additional optical components while performing the optical switching in dynamic optical networks.

  • Improved performance robustness of DSP-enabled flexible ROADMs free from optical filters and O-E-O conversions

    Utilizing Hilbert-pair-based digital filtering, intensity modulation, and passive optical coupling, digital signal processing (DSP) enabled flexible reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs) are reported, which are free from optical filters and optical-electrical-optical (O-E-O) conversions and offer excellent flexibility, color-lessness, gridlessness, contentionlessness, adaptability, and transparency to physical-layer network characteristics. In this paper, the ROADM performance robustness against variations in numerous network design aspects is, for the first time to the best of our knowledge, extensively explored in intensity-modulation- and direct-detection-based optical network nodes. Numerical results show that DSPs not only enable the ROADMs to dynamically and flexibly perform add/drop operations at wavelength, subwavelength, and spectrally overlapped orthogonal subband levels but also considerably improve the ROADM performance robustness against variations in modulation formats, transmission system characteristics/impairments, and terminal equipment configurations.

  • Milimeter-Wave Optical Subcarrier Generation by Using an External Modulator and Optical Carrier Suppression

    In this paper, we have theoretically investigated the transmission performance of the optical millimeter (mm)- wave generated by using an external modulator based on optical carrier suppression for the first time. According to our theory, the data signals carried by the optical mm-wave are transmitted in the dispersion fiber without fading but are degraded greatly because of the time shift of the code edges, which still limits the transmission distance. The experimental results agree well with our theory.
