Paper Abstract

In this paper wepresenttwoarchitectures ofhigh speedalloptical multistage interconnection networks anddiscuss how emerging opticaltechnology canprovide solution to switchingproblems which arise in telecommunication and supercomputersystems. The architectures support circuitswitched and packetswitching and are based on alloptical bistable device which constitutes an essential component of switching units. Various design issues related to optical clock generation its distribution data synchronization intensity restoration and power requirement are also discussed.
