Abstract
The next generation of distributed imaging and visualization environments for diagnostic radiography and C4I will require the delivery of a guaranteed quality-of-service by a ultra-high bit rate network. Two aspects of the quality-of-service, the link bit rate and the round-trip packet latency, can be met through the use of transparent third-generation photonic networks. These networks can be implemented using ultra-short optical pulses in conjunction with spectral-domain processing to construct links. These links are combined with transparent photonic packet switches to form the network switching fabric. The quality-of-service is guaranteed by using virtual circuit-switching.
