A new optical packet switching network and its enabling technologies are investigated for implementation in a Petaflops scale supercomputer system. We capitalize on the immense bandwidth of the optical fiber interconnects by deploying WDM/TDM packet payloads. To accommodate current optical switching technologies, the routing operations in the network are drastically simplified and the need for buffering is completely eliminated. This paper presents the experimental demonstration of the routing within the unique packet switched architecture. Multiple node hops are demonstrated in a node test-bed environment with a re- circulating loop configuration.
