The feasibility of achieving large throughput in a single wavelength channel using TDM is discussed. The system is implemented with electronic routing control having networks that are often referred as transparent optical networks. The processing time required by the electronic routing controllers depends on the complexity of the routing algorithm employed, so it is critical to develop simple and efficient routing schemes. The system demonstrated packet switching in an 8-node shuffle networks using a physical node by connecting the two output links back to one of the input links using 500 m of fiber. The routing controller traces the path of a test packet by reconfiguring the node identified after performing switching on the test packet.
