    A Novel Event-Driven QoS-Aware Connection Setup Management Scheme for Optical Networks

    This paper proposes a QoS-Aware Optical Connection Setup Management scheme that uses the Earliest Deadline First (EDF) queueing discipline to schedule the setup of the optical connections. The benefits of this EDF-based scheme are twofold: it reduces the blocking probability since blocked connection requests due to resource unavailability are queued...

    Turbo Codes for Pulse Position Modulation: Applying BCJR Algorithm on PPM Signals

    In this paper, the authors consider the problem of turbo encoding/decoding for Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) that constitutes a very popular modulation scheme for Free-Space Optical (FSO) communications and unipolar Ultra-WideBand (UWB) communications. At the transmitter side, a simple mapping strategy is applied where the systematic information bit and the...
