1. Hasnawi, Luai E. Modeling all-optical space/time switching fabrics with frame integrity.

Degree: 2017, University of Pittsburgh

All-optical networks have attracted significant attention because they promise to provide significant advantages in throughput, bandwidth, scalability, reliability, security, and energy efficiency. These six features appealed to optical transport-network operators in the past and, currently, to cloud-computing and data-center providers. But, the absence of optical processors and optical Random Access Memory (RAM) has forced the optical network designers to use optical-to-electrical conversion on the input side of every node so the node can process packet headers and store data during the switching operation. And, at every node’s output side, all data must be converted from its electronic form back to the optical domain before being transmitted over fiber to the next node. This practice reduces all six of those advantages the network would have if it were all-optical. So, to achieve a network that is all-optical end-to-end, many all-optical switching fabrics have been proposed. Many of these proposed switching fabrics lack a control algorithm to operate them. Two control algorithms are proposed in this dissertation for two previously-proposed switching fabrics. The first control algorithm operates a timeslot interchanger and the second operates a space/time switching fabric - where both these photonic systems are characterized by active Feed-Forward Fiber Delay Line (FF-FDL) and the frame-integrity constraint. In each case, the proposed algorithm provides non-blocking control of its corresponding switching fabric. In addition, this dissertation derives the output signal power from each switching fabric in terms of crosstalk and insertion loss.
