Abstract

A new switch architecture is presented to enhance outputqueuing in photonic packet switches. Its application is for apacket switching environment based on the optical transport offixed length packets. This architecture consists of a couple of cascadingswitching elements with output queuing, whose buffer capacityis limited by photonic technology. The introduction of asuitable buffer management allows a very good and balanced exploitationof the available optical memories, realized with fiber delaylines. In particular, packet loss performance is here evaluatedshowing the improvement with respect to the single switch anda way to design large optical switches is shown in order to meetbroadband network requirements.
