Circuit switching networks

Circuit Switching Networks

  • End-to-end dedicated circuits between clients

    • Client can be a person or equipment (router or switch)

  • Circuit can take different forms

    • Dedicated path for the transfer of electrical current

    • Dedicated time slots for transfer of voice samples

    • Dedicated frames for transfer of Nx51.84 Mbps signals

    • Dedicated wavelengths for transfer of optical signals

  • Circuit switching networks require:

    • Multiplexing & switching of circuits

    • Signaling & control for establishing circuits

  • These are the subjects covered in this chapter


How a network grows

How a network grows

  • A switch provides the network to a cluster of users, e.g. a telephone switch connects a local community

Multiplexing

  • Multiplexing involves the sharing of a transmission channel (resource) by several connections or information flows

    • Channel = 1 wire, 1 optical fiber, or 1 frequency band

  • Significant economies of scale can be achieved by combining many signals into one

    • Fewer wires/pole; fiber replaces thousands of cables

  • Implicit or explicit information is required to demultiplex the information flows.

Time-Division Multiplexing

(a) Each signal transmits 1 unit every 3T seconds

  • High-speed digital channel divided into time slots

  • Framing required

  • Telephone digital transmission

  • Digital transmission in backbone network

(b) Combined signal transmits 1 unit every T seconds

Wavelength division multiplexing

Optical fiber link carries several wavelengths

From few (4-8) to many (64-160) wavelengths per fiber

Imagine prism combining different colors into single beam

Each wavelength carries a high-speed stream

Each wavelength can carry different format signal

e.g. 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, or 10 Gbps

SONET


Sonet overview

SONET: Overview

  • SynchronousOptical NETwork

  • North American TDM physical layer standard for optical fiber communications

  • 8000 frames/sec. (Tframe = 125 sec)

    • compatible with North American digital hierarchy

  • Greatly simplifies multiplexing in network backbone

  • Protection & restoration

  • Line restoration provided by either:

    • Restoring a failed span

    • Switching the line around the ring
