Paper Abstract

We analyse optical solutions to realize crossbar networks in which connected users can send and receive information with all the others. Transmitters, receivers and links are now on the shelf. However optical switches have been the most critical point. A large variety of them are studied or developped. They can be packed into three groups : commutators, deflectors and directional couplers. The main characteristics of these devices are the attenuation, the crosstalk and the rise time. We analyse the main network parameters which are the number of processors, the reconfiguration time and the data rate.
