Abstract

A wavelength division multiplexing asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) multicast switch architecture is proposed to switch ATM cells in optical domain. Cells are stored in an optical memory consisting of optical delay line. Cell headers are extracted from incoming optical signals and converted to electrical signals for further processing, such as cell delineation, virtual channel identifier (VCI) overwrite, and cell synchronization. These three functions performed by a photonic ATM front-end process are very crucial and challenging for optical packet switch systems. Cell delineation and VCI overwrite were successfully demonstrated optically at 2.5 Gb/s.
