Issues to be Addressed
 IP/ATM: will ATM cont. to play a role ?
   – what about ATM switches & Multi-protocol
     Label Switching (MPLS)?
   – w/o ATM, which layer to provide QoS ?

    SONET, Gb-Ethernet, or Digital Wrapper?
  – which layer(s) to do protection/restoration?
Additional Topics
(

 IP/WDM: what is Optical Internet?
   – do we need an all-optical WDM layer?
   – optical packet/burst switching realistic?
   – will static or semi-permanent lightpaths
     between switches/routers (wavelength
     services) be sufficient?
 What are the challenging research
    topics (esp for academia)?
