Abstract

An optical burst switching (OBS) node with a fast 4x4 PLZT (Lead Lanthanum Zirconate Titanate) optical matrix switch and an electronic label processor is presented. Successful collision detection and collision resolution is demonstrated by two methods: deflection routing and shared wavelength conversion. Error-free performance at 10Gbps payload was achieved for both. Switching speed of 3.5µs was achieved, demonstrating small data granularity in the order of 10µs.
