Abstract

We describe what we believe to be new designs for all-optical cross connects, capable of wavelength conversion. They are based on two-dimensional, space–wavelength, Benes or Cantor topologies, and they exploit cascaded wave-mixing bulk frequency conversion. In these cross connects many channels at distinct frequencies can be simultaneously frequency translated in a common wave-mixing device, and a given lightpath may be converted many times between its input and output. The new wavelength-interchanging cross connects are nonblocking and require O{F log2 W[log2(FW)]n} wave-mixing converters, where n = 0, 1.
