Abstract

We present a new optical interconnect architecture that can be used in wavelength division multiplexing synchronous [ optical packet/burst switching networks. The proposed design uses parametric wavelength converters and wavelength exchange optical crossbars to reduce both switching and wavelength conversion complexity. Our design reduces both the number of wavelength converters as well as the number of space switches compared to most existing designs. We briefly present the architecture and enabling technologies. The main properties of the architecture are also discussed.
