This paper proposes an innovative metro mesh optical node and a two fold
control plane architectural solution composed of vertically interoperable subwavelength enabled GMPLS and TSON layers. Experimental results demonstrate
very high throughput (8.68 Gbps) low latency (<160 μs) and low (<25 μs) jitter
performance of the node. GMPLS protocol extensions are also provided to support
such metro mesh network.
