Abstract

<p><a href="http://www.osa-jon.org/features/OIN_2004.html">Feature Issue on Optical Interconnection Networks (OIN)</a></p> A performance analysis of an optically interconnected packet-scheduling switch network is presented. The scheduling switch uses a branch of feed-forward delays for each input port, interconnected with elementary optical switches to resolve contention. The scheduling switch is guaranteed to be lossless under a certain smoothness property condition. We investigate the packet-loss performance of the switch when the smoothness property condition does not hold, as well as the packet delay impairments at the edge of a scheduling switch interconnected network when this property is enforced.
