Paper Abstract

We demonstrated our newly designed architecture of optical self-organizing network which enables concurrent peer-to-peer communications of more than two pairs in our previous model. We have realized this architecture by expanding the previous two dimensional lattice connection into three dimensional lattice connection. Two main features achieved by our present work are as follows. First, we have designed the tubular shaped architecture of equivalent peer-to-peer type network which enables two pairs to perform transmission from any open ports located at each end of the tubular connected nodes. Secondly, we have considered to layer the tubular shaped network structure described above in order to increase the limit of pairs by which concurrent communications are possible. In numerical simulation, we have confirmed the efficiency of our above mentioned two architectures of networks. The merit of these two networks is that they can be composed by our previously reported three-port node we have simply realized in optoelectronic hardware or by just adding the fourth port to it. As a consequence, we have proved that our present scheme of simple architectures of optical self-organizing network has potential utility value in actual use for peer-to-peer optical communications.
