    This paper introduces a family of bidirectional multi-fibre passive photonic ring architectures that may serve as a high-capacity network backbone for supporting next-generation data-centric services. We introduce a novel dual-router node design that avoids several non-ideal routing phenomena typically associated with passive networks based on cyclic graphs. Our design also achieves the requisite single-hop full-mesh connectivity needed for arbitrary node-to-node communications. A ring enlargement strategy is presented that allows this architecture to scale across a wide range of networking domains. A medium access protocol will also briefly elaborated.
