Abstract

Feature Issue on Waveband Switching, Routing, and Grooming

The rapid advances in WDM technology are expected to bring about tremendous growth in the size of optical cross connects (OXCs). In this context, multigranular OXCs (MG-OXCs) have been suggested as a means of reducing the amount of equipment required. Here we expand the concept of MG-OXCs to include optical packet granularity and review the key building blocks for the advent of MG-OXCs. A single-layer MG-OXC is suggested that offers enhanced flexibility with respect to other single-layer concepts, conversion capability, and good physical performance. Concatenation performance is analytically investigated.
