We have successfully applied Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) architecture to the Wavelength Assignment Photonic Switching System (WAPS) to create an internet access system that can provide, between terminals, not only conventional best-effort type of IP packet forwarding, but also high-speed and Quality of Service (QoS)-guaranteed IP forwarding. In this paper the system architecture, system specifications, and system hardware/software implementations are described.
