Future Internet packet switches and routers will have to overcome intrinsic limitations of current electronic switching fabrics, related to the extremely high amount and density of the information to be internally processed, and the consequent very large number of interconnections, and very high power consumption and dissipation. Motivated by this observation, we consider different architectures of optical switching fabrics, capable to interconnect the linecards of a packet switch with an… CONTINUE READING
