A Scalable and High Capacity All-Optical Packet Switch: Design, Analysis, and Control

In this paper, a modular and scalable all-optical packet switch (AOPS) is proposed. The range of its capacity can be easily scaled from gigabit per second to multi-terabits per second. Due to its broadcast-and-select property, the proposed AOPS is capable of performing a multicast function. By taking the advantage of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM… (More)
