IP over Optical: From Packets to Photons
November/December 2000 (vol. 4 no. 6)
pp. 76-82
The computing industry is currently experiencing a love affair with all things optical. Not since ATM's heyday in the mid-1990s has a network technology generated so much excitement, innovation, or debatenot to mention hype and venture capital. Optical networking is the subject of countless research papers; of civilized (and uncivilized) discourse in many standards bodies; and of many industry conferences. Moreover, it is the core strategic component of many traditional and start-up network enterprises. And why not? This technology promises innovative developments that will simultaneously make communications faster and less expensive.
