A wavelength broker for markets of competing optical transport networks
- Yassine A.
The current trend in optical networks is to open the entire wholesale market to competition. As a result, we will see, instead of a single big market player, optical transport networks competing with each other to attract customer demand. This paper presents a wavelength broker who acts on behalf of enterprises, web host companies, financial firm etc. to buy certain number of wavelengths from such market. We present the system model, the interaction protocol and provide analysis of the competition. The simulation results of a business scenario are also recorded in the paper.View Original Article
