We propose a next-generation service-transport separated network architecture that uses packet technology. The transport network is responsible for the high speed and reliable bit transfer, and the service network is responsible for many types of network services. This separation makes it possible for the next-generation network to achieve both rapid bandwidth spreading and the speedy installation of new services. We also propose a next-generation transport network using the multi-protocol label switching transport profile (MPLS-TP) and optical networking technologies.
