Research Topics


Daryoush GEMS proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a high-performance all-optical backbone network for military applications. The network is based on wavelength division multiplexing with sub-carrier modulation and a novel universal network interface. The network will seamlessly support a number of high-performance protocols with multiple security levels and be scaleable to more than 30 nodes at data rates up to 10Gb/s.
