Abstract
ASON is new type of optical network which can offer the flexibility for bandwidth allocation and fast provision of the new service. However, until now there still are many non-ASON optical networks. It is a challenging issue to reconstruct them into ASON smoothly. In this paper, we propose a new reconstructing technology. This technology performs the function of the control plane such as link management, path management and interface management by an embedded top-set-box (ETSB). The ETSB is located between EMS and the traditional NE such as DWDM, WDM, SDH, etc. By this technology the hardware module of the existing optical network element (NE) need not modification. Thus, compared with other reconstructing technologies, the cost and the risk of this reconstructing technology are smaller.
