An OTDM router architecture using a highly scalable time slot tuner is discussed. Results for a 100-Gb/s, 16-channel router using a computer-controlled interface are presented. The scalability and latency of the router based upon the time slot tuner shows that aggregate bandwidths beyond 1 Tb/s are possible. We show that a maximum hardware time slot access latency of less than 3.2 ns can be achieved with this architecture enabling ultrafast optical packet routing.
