Abstract

The implementation of a low-latency optical packet switch architecture that is controllable while scaling to over thousand ports is investigated in this paper. Optical packet switches with thousand of input/output ports are promising devices to improve the performance of short link applications in Data Centers (DCs) or High Performance Computers (HPCs) environments. We show that classical switch architectures with a centralized control would not meet latency requirements of such applications. We present a WDM optical packet switch modular architecture with highly distributed control that allows scaling to over thousand ports while providing sub-microsecond end-to-end latencies.
