Designing switching architectures for network routers and switches needs to consider limits imposed by the electronic technology, like small bandwidth×distance factors, power density constraints, energy consumption and dissipation issues. Introducing optical technologies to implement switching functions can overcome several of the current design limits. We propose a cost-effective architecture implementing an optical switch without any need for optoelectronic conversion within the switchingdoi:10.1109/icc.2008.1017 dblp:conf/icc/BiancoCCFN08 fatcat:c3gjysmnnba4xbxiiqxsgyljbi
