Paper Abstract

We have already proposed a new system concept, Generation Free Platform (GF-PF), where the system can continue to grow and reconfigure to correspond with rapid changes in business conditions. In our concept, a multi-stage modular switch and a stackable system with optical interconnection are key features that can achieve a scalable and flexible system. By using our ultra small optical transceiver (PETIT) and high-Δ low-diameter MMF in the optical interconnection, fiber assembly area can be much smaller than that of a conventional design.
