We consider the problem of realizing several common communication structures in the all-optical Partitioned Optical Passive Stars (POPS) topology. We show that, often, the obvious or “natural” method of implementing a communication pattern in the POPS does not efficiently utilize its communication capabilities. We present techniques which distribute the communication load uniformly in the POPS for four of the most common communication patterns (all-to-all personalized, global reduction… CONTINUE READING
