Abstract

The performance of an optical switching network is mainly determined by its core node structure. An improved optical packet switching (OPS) node structure based on recirculation optical fiber delay line (FDL) and feedback tunable wavelength converter (TWC), and a specific scheduling algorithm for the node structure are presented. This switching structure supports both point-to-point and point-to-multi-points broadcasting transmission with superior capacity expansion performance. Its superiority in packet loss probability is proved by simulation.
