Abstract

An opto-electronic switching node architecture based on ATM and frequency division switching techniques is proposed. The node architecture, capable of handling frequency multiplexed packet input flows, is based on optical memories realized with fiber rings and a multiconnection network with tunable filters and frequency converters.
