- In this paper we have proposed the GROW-Net, a novel hybrid optical wireless access network architecture. GROW-Net is designed to provide cost-effective broadband access connections in a highly populated and dense metropolitan area and consists of an optical grid network that provides a broadband backhauling, and wireless mesh networks that penetrate into users neighborhood to provide a low cost and ubiquitous link. Its architectural scalability and flexibility make the GROW-Net highly adaptive to the bandwidth demands in a cost-effective way. For traffic routing on the optical grid infrastructure, we propose a hierarchical loop routing protocol. In addition, since GROW-Net provisions multiple mesh portals within a grid cell, we propose to develop intra-cell hybrid adaptive routing protocols and algorithms to achieve optimal network performance experienced by the end users. Detailed implementations of the reconfigurable node and routing protocols are now under extensive study.
