An optical code-labeled router that performs packet forwarding through optical code label swapping (OCLS) based on code division multiplexing technology is proposed. It can enhance the processing speed of packets that can adapt to the growth of data and the aggregation of data service. The throughput of the router increases obviously since the optical code division multiplexing (OCDM) paths on the same wavelength can be processed in parallel. Moreover, it is attractive for its traffic control, bandwidth efficiency, protocol transparency, channel granularity, and so on.
