Abstract
Although the automatically switched optical networks (ASON) specifications strongly recommend a hierarchical network architecture for these networks, this is still an open issue. The hierarchical network concept involves several mechanisms mainly related with signaling and routing, such as the aggregation scheme, the dissemination process, the updating policy and the routing algorithms. The existing mechanisms for flat networks must be substantially modified to be applied to a hierarchical netwo...
