A new network concept is introduced that exploits transparent optical grooming of traffic between an access network and a metro core ring network. This network is enabled by a novel optical router which allows buffer-less aggregation of metro network traffic into higher capacity data streams for core network transmission. A key functionality of the router is WDM to TDM trans-multiplexing.
