We introduce a novel device for optical switching by using the position shift of the spatial soliton after collision, The device is a one-to-three switching device controlled by two control beams. For the optimum signal power, the transmission efficiency is above 95%. The wave propagation in the structure and the transmission efficiency as a function of input signal power are shown and discussed.
