Optical time-division packet switch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


An optical time-division packet switch architecture is proposed in this paper. It is based on all optical packet compression and decompression, hybrid electro-optical header processing and optical packet reordering and buffering. The packet compression and decompression subsystem is based on novel compression by bitreordering principle that makes it possible to build efficient shared systems. The hybrid electro-optical packet header processor is able to process compressed packets at the original packet speed. The core of the switching system is packet reordering unit that performs the actual switching operation. All buffering is intergrated in the reordering unit.
