Abstract

The influence of the different ATM (asynchronous transfer mode)/IP traffic types on the processes executed on the optical physical layer are studied. The signal power and the power transients are considered as a function of the ATM/IP traffic transmitted to the ATM physical layer via a bit-oriented interface. The self-similar behavior of ATM/IP traffic is observed and analyzed with the wavelet transform techniques. The dependence of the power transients on the transmitted traffic is shown by mathematical modeling and by computer simulation. The fractal structure is obtained, and its dimension is evaluated.
