Abstract

We present a scalable, low latency optical packet switch sub-system that is capable to switch optical packets with multiple modulation formats. The optical packet switch sub-system employing in-band labeling to allow for transparent routing of packets with multiple data formats and data bit-rates. Packets employing in-band labels can be processed without the need to reconfigure the label processor and the switch when changing data format and bit-rate. The label processor is based on asynchronous optical signal processing in combination with a simple electronic combinatory network. This makes the label processor capable to process a large number of labels with low latency time (
