Abstract

We propose a novel large-scale OXC architecture that utilizes WSSs for dynamic wavelength grouping and 1xn switches for fiber selection. We also develop a network design algorithm that can make the best use of the routing capability of the proposed nodes. Numerical experiments on several topologies show that the architecture attains substantial hardware scale reduction. A prototype demonstrates good transmission performance and confirms the technical feasibility of the proposed OXC architecture.
