A novel all-optical packet switching is presented. Adopting optical-controlled optical switch and multi-wavelength optical label technology, all the extraction of optical packet header, recognizing of route information and control of optical switch matrix can be processed in optical domain without O-E/E-O conversion. In this switching, the header label pulses are separated to different optical paths to control the optical-controlled optical switch matrix. According to different sequence and different wavelength of the header pulses, the different optical routes can be established, and a kind of all-optical packet switching is achieved.
