ABSTRACT

In this paper, we present an improvement of switch node for wavelength multiplex optical network. Currently because of quick increase of internet traffic a big network capacity is demanded. Wavelength multiplex optical network provides the data transfer of high speed and the transparent characteristic of the data. Therefore optical network configuration is the most powerful technology in the future. It will be able to control the massive traffic from the optical network in order to transmit the multimedia information of very many quantity. Consequently the node where the traffic control is possible, is demanded. The optical switch node which manages efficiently the multiple wavelength was proposed. This switch is composed of a optical switch module for switching and a wavelength converter module for wavelength conversion. It will be able to compose the switch fabric without optical/electro or electro/optical conversion using optical MEMS(Micro Electro Mechanical Switches) module. Finally, we present the good test result regarding the operational quality of the switch fabric and the performance of optical signal from the switch node. The proposed switch node of the optical network will be able to control the massive traffic with all optical.
