A novel scheme of signaling protocol based on mobile agent and OBS which runs over a core DWDM network is promoted. Design of optical wavelength channels in the scheme is to choose 1310nm band to be control optical wavelength channel to transmit BHPs and 1550nm band to be burst packets optical wavelength channels to transmit BPs.
Referring to RSVP-TE in DCM ASON, significations and formats of signaling messages in the protocol are defined. The key design of scheme is to utilize the structure of active packets in the application of mobile agent MANet to encapsulate signaling messages and traffic together into one BHP to shorten the set-up time of an optical path. Such structure is also used to process distributed disposals to alleviate the workload of one node in the network to promote cooperating calculation ability of each node in the network. The communication between a source node and a destination node through one or multiple intermediate nodes is presented as an example to describe the processing procedures of the protocol. The scheme is implemented in a wavelength router, which is briefly introduced.
There are two primary methods of transmitting signal of digital television to the home in China. The first one is HFC mode, which is widely used. The other is IPTV mode, which is emerging. In this paper, the scheme of digital television over Ethernet PON is proposed. There are several differences from this system to IPTV and Video over LAN: the real-time transmission of equal-bandwidth based on statistical multiplexing, channel switching based on multicast and IP CA system, etc.. And these are also the key techniques used in this system. The architecture of DTV over EPON system, the function of every component, the framing process and the multiplexing of Ethernet frame are described. The implementation procedure of the system is shown. The mechanism of channel switching using multicast technique is designed and realized. We also present the method of using static VLAN and IGMP snooping mechanism to implement statistical multiplexing on Ethernet layer, and put forward the concept of IP Conditional Access System and define it. An experimental system of DTV over EPON is set up and the experimental result is significant.
