Loss estimation and control mechanism in bufferless optical packet-switched networks based on multilayer perceptron

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are well-known estimators for the output of broad range of complex systems and functions. In this paper, a common ANN architecture called multilayer perceptron (MLP) is used as a fast optical packet loss rate …

DF MISO system with arbitrary beamforming in atmospheric turbulence and misalignment errors

A dual-hop decode-and-forward relay-assisted $$2\times 1$$ 2 × 1 multiple-input single-output free-space optical (FSO) communication system is considered. Error performance of the considered FSO system is analyzed with an arbitrary beamforming …

MIMO-enabled integrated MGDM–WDM distributed antenna system architecture based on plastic optical fibers for millimeter-wave communication

Design of a low-cost fiber–wireless communication architecture is desirable by network operators. Therefore, we demonstrate the transmission of $$2 \times 2$$ 2 × 2 MIMO spatial streams, each having 2 Gbps DPSK signal to two different radio access …

A spectrum-efficient algorithm based on traffic splitting and merging transmission for anycast in inter-datacenter elastic optical networks

Anycast is attracting much attention due to the need of scalable and cost-effective data delivery in inter-datacenter elastic optical networks. However, spectrum fragmentation degrades network’s performance and decreases probability of successful …
