With ever-increasing demands for bandwidth optical packet/burst switching is used to utilise more of the available capacity of optical networks. In current prototypes of optical switches time and wavelength multiplexing are combined to resolve packet contentions by means of Fiber Delay Lines and wavelength converters in the switching elements.
