In this paper we present an OTDM multihop prototype network developed in the Lightwave Communication Laboratory at Princeton University. Employing a new self-routing scheme with special address coding suitable for optical packet switching, we demonstrate 100 Gbit/s optical packet switching in an 8-node transparent shufflenetwork which offers extremely high bandwidth and low latency. Our design has also made the network highly scalable, the results from the performance studies of this network can be extended to many other multihop network topologies of larger sizes.
