Aims & Scope

Optical Switching and Networking (OSN) is an archival journal aiming to provide complete coverage of all topics of interest to those involved in the optical and opto-electronic networking areas. The editorial board is committed to providing detailed, constructive feedback to submitted papers, as well as a fast turn-around time.

Optical Switching and Networking considers high-quality, original, and unpublished contributions addressing all aspects of optical and opto-electronic networks. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Optical and Opto-Electronic Backbone, Metropolitan and Local Area Networks
• Novel Architectures for WDM, TDM, and CDMA Optical Networks
• Wavelength Routed Networks
• Routing and Wavelength Assignment Algorithms and Protocols
• Physical and Logical Topology Design for Large-Scale Networks
• Architectures and Protocols for Optical Burst Switching (OBS)
• Architectures and Protocols for Optical Packet Switching (OPS)
• Novel Transport Layer Protocols for OBS and OPS
• Passive Optical Networks for Business and Residential Access
• Optical Interconnection Systems
• Home Networks, In-Vehicle Networks, and Other Short-Reach Networks
• Multi-Granular Switching Architectures and Algorithms
• Scalable Switch Design and Evaluation
• Wavelength Conversion
