Paper Abstract

This paper studies the performance of a large-scale free-space photonic packet switch based on the generalised knockout principle. Input and output channels are grouped into sectors to make the whole switch a Clos-like three-stage architecture. The input traffic is mainly IP data packets but compatible with ATM cells. Fan-in and fan-out stages are suitable to use free-space optical interconnections with Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) as the switching element. The switch performance was studied based on the switching simulation under different traffic conditions and routing schemes.
