Abstract
We proposed a novel 2x2 all optical packet switching router architecture supporting asynchronous variable-length packet. In order to deal with the contention problem we adopt for wavelength conversion strategy. A proof of concept through Optiwave simulation is validated. We have showing that the contending packet is detected and forwarded according FIFO (First In First Out) strategy at a different wavelength. Error-free functionality is achieved for high bit rates (up to 100 Gbps).
