Paper Abstract

Today networks are too cumbersome due to the incoherent integration of various technologies developed over time. Convergence of data, voice, and video has caused the retro-fitting of a network to support non-native traffic types and this has led to sub-par performance for every traffic type. Fundamental changes are warranted to support high bandwidth traffic. The network must guarantee end-to-end delivery and provide inherent protection within the physical structure. We propose that the main traffic types of today's applications should be carried using the following features: connection-oriented service, traffic grooming to fill those connection oriented pipes, and forward error recovery with protection provided in the physical layer. We present some of our research results.
