Abstract

In this paper, we present a high-performance dual-receiver transparent optical node configuration suitable for two-connected multihop transparent optical networks operating at ultrafast bit rates. The steady-state behavior of optical shuffle networks is analyzed with this configuration and a minimum-loss node configuration. Deflection routing is employed as the means for contention resolution. Both analytical results and simulation results are presented on the network performance in terms of network throughput and delay. We also propose modified routing schemes for network fault tolerance. Applying both store-and-forward and deflection routing techniques, the networks can operate without packet loss in the presence of faults.
