Paper Abstract

CrossWave$TM) multiplexed domain switches enable low cost, simple, reliable and scalable architectures for a wide variety of wavelength selective cross connects, dynamically reconfigurable add/drop multiplexers and hybrid optical core switches. As DWDM becomes ubiquitous in long haul and metro core networks, carriers are looking to optical switching to manage the ever-growing number of wavelengths and to automate wavelength routing, restoration and grooming. To meet these requirements, optical core switches (OCSs) need to scale to accommodate high wavelength counts, high TDM bit rates and various types of transport protocols such as SONET and GbE.
