Abstract : Optical technology has become a significant part of communications networks. This effort will design, develop, and experimentally evaluate an optical interface message processor (OPTIMP) that exploits the high bandwidth, parallelism, and high storage density offered by optics. The most time consuming operations such as switching and routing in communications networks will be performed in the optical domain. Because of this, the OPTIMP will not suffer from the electrical-optical/optical-electrical conversion bottlenecks and therefore perform switching and routing in the gigabits/sec range. Optical communications networks, Optical interface message processor.
