Paper Abstract

With advent of escalating internet data traffic demand, the optical networks are migrating to more data-centric, dynamic and intelligent networks. Optical core switch (OCS) that effectively provides DWDM wavelength level switching emerges as the key enabler for the next generation optical internet. We proposed and developed a novel ultra-scalable optical core switching system incorporating wide range tunable laser for wavelength switching and simple 1xM photonic switch for fiber switching. The system provides flexible wavelength switching and DWDM transport in a single network element, and offer ultra-scalability to transport and switching from single to over 1000 wavelengths with total capacity over 10 Tbps.
