In an optical packet switch (OPS), input fibers carry multiple wavelengths, each of which carries a packet to one output fiber. As several wavelengths from different inputs could be destined to the same output fiber, one wavelength can be connected and the others remain disconnected, losing the carried packets. Because of the multiple wavelengths available at an output fiber, wavelength conversion in the OPS of the unconnected wavelengths into those available can increase the number of… CONTINUE READING
