Data from two photonic switching systems is presented, the first is a 4 x 4 crossbar, and the second is a 4 X 4 passive splitter/ active combiner broadcast switch. The 4 X 4 crossbar has operated continuously and reliably for 18 months with no noticeable performance degradation. The 4 X 4 passive splitterlactive combiner has operated for six months and(More)
Demands for increased interconnection density and higher bandwidth, coupled with stringent cost constraints of advanced wide bandwidth telecommunication switching and high throughput computer architectures, are exhausting conventional electrical interconnection capabilities. The requirement for greater interconnection capabilities, spawned in part by the(More)
