The traffic grooming functionality of two optical packet switched (OPS) node architectures that use a switched wavelength infrastructure are investigated. Three different application scenarios are considered: single-hop grooming with edge-OPS only, multi-hop grooming with edge-OPS only and grooming with edge and core OPS. The advantages and disadvantages of the first two application scenarios are explained by a case study. The third scenario also considers the effects of differing core-OPS placement in different network topologies. One key factor investigated is the effect of aggregation granularity on the grooming performance in the core-OPS scenario.
