Abstract

We proposed generalized large-scale two-stage-routing OXC architectures and evaluated the performance possible with the use of small-degree WSSs and simple optical devices; 1xn switches or WBSSs. Numerical evaluations verify that the new architectures reduce necessary hardware scale substantially at the cost of few additional fibers while their effectiveness increases with the traffic demand. The tradeoff between the link resource increase and the hardware scale reduction is also clarified.
