Abstract

A 100 Gb/s optical time division multiplexing interconnect based on a broadcast star architecture logically equivalent to a fully connected crossbar but uses only N switching elements is described. This single-hop, broadcast-and-select architecture offers single cycle channel access latency by employing a fast time slot tuner only in the transmitter of each node. As a router, it scales gracefully and offers 1 Tb/s aggregate bandwidth and support over 1000 nodes. The capability of the interconnect is extended to provide full multicasting functionality to a rich subset of network nodes.
