This paper discussed some requirements and issues for connection management in an optical wavelength routing switch in the context of a dynamically configurable wavelength management network environment. The wavelength connection management in the optical routing switch provides and manages the data path in the switch core for the configured end-to-end light path. Through a unique approach in design of the switching fabrics control and management, it is believed that a more scalable, flexible, and manageable optical wavelength routing switch architecture can be achieved. For editing purpose it is focused more on O-E-O model throughout this paper, although the contents would serve the same purpose to all optical model.
