We demonstrate an all-optical buffering method that can handle contention of three optical packets. We have employed a laser neural network as an all-optical arbiter that decides whether packet contention takes place. The laser neural network drives a wavelength routing switch that is used to route the data packets into fiber delay lines. Experimental results are presented.
