A novel multistage optical cross-connect (OXC) that combined the advantages of three technologies of Space Division Switching (SDS), Wavelength Division Switching (WDS), and Optical Time-Division Multiplexing (OTDM) has been proposed. The structures of the first and second stages of a 2 X 2 and a 4 X 4 OXC have been presented. By means of the splitter and delivery (SAD) switch, it is cost-effective and fully modularized and very convenient to scale to n X n OXCs suitable for large-scale backbones.
