Abstract
In the paper, a new optical packet switch is proposed, which uses shared WDM buffers (fiber delay-lines) and shared tunable wavelength converters (TWCs) as contention resolution. In each fiber delay-lines, many wavelengths can be used to buffer packets at the same time. The shared TWCs have two kinds of functions, either as translators for free wavelengths in destination output fibers, or as translators for free wavelengths in the feedback FDLs. Based on this architecture, a lower packet loss rate can be achieved without the need of deploying a large number of FDLs and TWCs. The performance of the new architecture has been extensively studied by means of simulation experiments.
