Abstract
Formed in January 1995, WEST is a DARPA-supported consortium investigating technologies for implementing add-drop and cross-connect switches operating at 10 Gbit/s. Using wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), each fiber supports 40 Gbit/s (4 by 10 Gbit/s) aggregate bandwidth for SONET/SDH operation. Consortium members include Rockwell Corporation, Ortel Corporation, UCSB, UCSD, UCLA, and Caltech/JPL.
