Nowadays as more and more users start to use data networks, and their usage patterns evolve to include more and more bandwidth-intensive networking applications such as data browsing on the worldwide web, java applications, video conferencing, etc., there emerges as acute need for very high-bandwidth transport network facilities, whose capabilities are much beyond those that current high-speed networks can provide. Wavelength optical networks are believed to be able to meet the information networking demands of the coming decades and constitute the backbones of the next generation of the Internet.
