The compatibility and the integration of optical transparent networks with present day legacy networks and protocols, of which TCP-IP is definitely one of the most outstanding examples, is a subject of intense debate within the scientific community. In this chapter we will address exactly this issue and present some examples of analysis of TCP performance in this scenario. We will briefly review the main proposals for all optical networking and will then focus on all optical packet switching. We will describe the main issues regarding such techniques, review the building block architecture and their functional requirements. Then we will show how these requirements may affect TCP performance taking into account the end-to-end network performance.

Abstract

The compatibility and the integration of optical transparent networks with present day legacy networks and protocols, of which TCP-IP is definitely one of the most outstanding examples, is a subject of intense debate within the scientific community. In this chapter we will address exactly this issue and present some examples of analysis of TCP performance in this scenario. We will briefly review the main proposals for all optical networking and will then focus on all optical packet switching. We will describe the main issues regarding such techniques, review the building block architecture and their functional requirements. Then we will show how these requirements may affect TCP performance taking into account the end-to-end network performance.
