The-Scheduler : A Multiwavelength Scheduling Switch

  title={The-Scheduler : A Multiwavelength Scheduling Switch},
  author={Jonathan P. Lang and Emmanouel A. Varvarigos and Daniel J. Blumenthal},
We propose a new multiwavelength almost all-optical switch architecture called the -scheduler that uses wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) internally to fold the switch architecture in both the space and time domains to reduce the hardware complexity and to improve the signal characteristics through the switch. The -scheduler preserves the packet order for a given input–output pair, is consistent with virtual circuit switching, and when combined with appropriate connection and flow control… CONTINUE READING
