Abstract

Optical packet switching is connectionless networking solution through which we can get high speed data transfer and optimum bandwidth utilization using wavelength division multiplexing technique. For realizing optical packet switching the numbers of optical packet switch architectures are available in market. In this chapter the authors discuss the overall development of optical packet switching; some recently published optical packet switch architectures are discussed in the chapter and a comparison is performed between the switches through loss, cost and buffer analysis.

Evolution Of Optical Fiber Communication System

The development of fiber optic technology provided the medium through which transmission of light is possible. As the name shows, this type of communication system uses optical waves that carries signals, the bit rate distance product can be improved in optical fiber several orders of magnitude as compared to the microwave and coaxial system.
