Paper Abstract

The benefits of using multi-granularity switching to reduce the number of ports, including both electronic and optical ports, have been investigated. A multi-layer ring architecture with multiple switches is suggested and two equations to count the number of ports are derived. Comparisons are made among multi-layer multi-granularity switching (MM-XC), multi-switching (M-XC), and single switching (S-XC).
