Title:
SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPTICAL SWITCHING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/206294
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
As network traffic grows and more data needs to be transmitted through a network, it is desired to use optical switching systems that allow for switching between a large number of nodes. An optical switching system according to one embodiment disclosed herein allows different nodes to transmit optical signals having the same optical wavelength, in order to accommodate a larger number of nodes. For example, one cluster of nodes may transmit data using optical wavelengths that are the same as optical wavelengths that may also be used by other clusters of nodes. A controller performs scheduling and reconfiguration in the optical switching system, as needed, e.g. in order to mitigate collisions.
