Abstract
We develop a compact automated fiber cross-connect module with micro-optical connectors that uses a fiber-handling robot to cross-connect any of 100 input optical fibers to any of 100 output fibers. The micro-optical connectors and fiber-handling robot make the module about a quarter of the size of a conventional automated cross-connect module. Experimental results show that the module's average cross-connection time is about 1 min and the initial insertion loss is less than 0.7 dB.
