Discussion of Automatic Switch Optical Network Application
CUI Rong-chun (Huazhong University of Science and Technology,Wuhan Hubei 430074,China)
With the continuous progress of transmission technique and the rapid development of data and Internet services, the application of Automatic Switch Optical Network (ASON) has been evolved widely. ASON has such technical features as the auto routing restoration, dynamic supporting service, network flexibility and survivability, etc. MESH will be applied in ASON architecture. Both distributed control plane and Network Management System (NMS) will execute network control and management. ASON will be introduced from the current backbone networks or metro core networks.
