Paper Abstract

We report on the development of a transparent optical node at 1.3 micrometers wavelength for an ATM packet switch operating at 1.24416 Gbit/s header recognition rates. The node takes advantage of the high-speed performance of optoelectronic components to alleviate potential bottlenecks resulting from optical to electrical conversion experience in nontransparent packet switching architectures. The node is intended for use in two-connected, slotted networks, is self-clocking, and has drop/add multiplexing, buffering, and routing capabilities.
