A survey of recent literature on all optical networking is presented. Starting from multiplexing techniques and topological features, network design and performance issues are reviewed. Particular attention is devoted to Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) networks. Static and dynamic solutions of the routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) problem are considered. Issues of current research are summarized.
