Design of efficient, virtual non-blocking optical switches

Lind, Larry F.; Spratt, Michael


Keyword(s): optical switching; switch design

Abstract: Large optical switches are made by connecting smaller switch arrays together, usually as three stage networks. This letter shows how three stage efficiency can be further improved, by allowing a negligible amount of blocking to exist. A simple design algorithm is also developed, which removes the need for long simulations. Notes: Larry F. Lind, University of Essen, Essen, Germany
