Paper Abstract

We base our study on a scalable optical asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switch using a wavelength-division multiplexed (WDM) and space-division multiplexed (SDM) interconnection network. This switch uses an algorithm to achieve near 100% throughput but the delay is worse than that of an input-queued switch for low loads, and is significantly inferior to that of an output-queued switch for high loads. Another drawback is the difficult hardware implementation. The performance of this modified switch architecture is studied by numerical simulations. Under Uniform and Poisson input traffic, it achieves near 100% throughput and an average delay similar to that of an output-queued switch.
