In order to facilitate convergence of networks and services, we propose a new hybrid and integrated QoS control scheme that combines electrical IP layer features with reconfigurable optical layer, and investigate a comprehensive service differentiation mechanism of integrating both IP and optical QoS functionalities. The proposed integrated QoS control scheme can: 1) provide appropriate transport service for various applications relating to different service categories; 2) maintain high flexibility/scalability for integrated services provisioning; and 3) meet carrier-class QoS requirements.
