The objective of the COST 291 Action "Towards Digital Optical Networks" was to focus on novel network concepts, subsystems and architectures. Its aim was to enable telecommunication networks to exploit the features and properties of photonic technologies.

COST the acronym for European COoperation in Science and Technology is the oldest and widest European intergovernmental network for cooperation in - search. Established by the Ministerial Conference in November 1971, COST is presently used by the scientific communities of 35 European countries to coop- ate in common research projects supported by national funds. The funds provided by COST less than 1% of the total value of the projects support the COST cooperation networks (COST Actions) through which, with 30 million per year, more than 30,000 European scientists are involved in - search having a total value which exceeds 2 billion per year. This is the financial worth of the European added value which COST achieves. A bottom up approach (the initiative of launching a COST Action comes from the European scientists themselves), à la carte participation (only countries interested in the Action participate), equality of access (participation is open also to the scientific communities of countries not belonging to the European - ion) and flexible structure (easy implementation and light management of the research initiatives) are the main characteristics of COST.

The explosive growth of data, particularly internet traffic, has led to a dramatic increase in demand for transmission bandwidth imposing an immediate requirement for broadband networks. The primary objective of the COST 291 Action "Towards Digital Optical Networks" was to focus on novel network concepts, subsystems and architectures to enable future telecommunication networks, exploiting the features and properties of photonic technologies. Three working groups were established to deal with these research objectives: WG1 "Optical processing for digital network performance", dealt with the physical layer and implementation related issues of transparent optical networks such as optical signal per bit processing, optical switch architecture designs and implementations as well as transmission related issues. WG2 "Novel network architectures", focused on the evolution of network scenarios including novel network architectures. Also different node architectures and technologies in terms of network performance and functionality were investigated. Three different architectures were studied and compared: circuit (wavelength, waveband, etc.), optical burst and optical packet switched networks. WG3 "Unified control plane, network resilience and service security", dealt as well with the impact of transparency on photonic network architectures and the associated control and protocol issues as on network survivability and security issues, covering topics such as protection and restoration, its impact on routing and wavelength assignment algorithms, fault isolation, disaster recovery, etc. The results obtained within these working groups are collected in this volume.
