Paper Abstract

This paper explores better physical layouts of the routing and control links within a multi-stage packet switched photonic network known as Data Vortex network architecture. For minimum signal interference and best synchronization, the proposed physical layouts allow for a non-crossing arrangement of the electrical control links while keeping the same simple optical routing paths patterns at specified routing levels. A general guidance is given for constructing such arrangements, and several examples are given in the discussion. The modified layouts allow for an easy optical implementation for the 3-D architecture, and they enable optimized the signal quality and effective synchronization of the physical systems.
