Paper Abstract

A minimal routing strategy for a new network architecture, named Starring, is presented. The simplicity of the proposed algorithm optimizes the expected average number of hops and hence the efficiency, of the network. Estimates of the network diameter and of the average number of hops in the Starring architecture show that, in the optimized operating mode, they compare fairly well with those related to other known photonic structures. The self-minimal routing behavior of the Starring and the possibility of an easy design and implementation of all-optical switching circuit make the Starring structure attractive and competitive.
