Board Level Interconnection with WDM Routing Functionality Invited
01:30-02:00
2017-07-10 01:30 2017-07-10 02:00 America/Denver Board Level Interconnection with WDM Routing Functionality In the present communication, we review recent advances of the European project ICT-STREAMS platform that employs AWGR-based WDM routing concepts with key- silicon photonics technologies and polymer based electro-optical circuit boards, towards enabling on-board wavelength routing architecture for multiple chip-to-chip interconnection.

Combining Optics and SDN to Enable True Hybrid Integration of Electronic and Photonic Switching Solutions Invited
02:30-03:00
2017-07-10 02:30 2017-07-10 03:00 America/Denver Combining Optics and SDN to Enable True Hybrid Integration of Electronic and Photonic Switching Solutions We demonstrate how combining optical and electronic switches with a Software Defined Network control plane paves the way to the introduction of optical switching solutions in data centers. Two different architectures: C-Share and OpSquare are discussed and analyzed using simulation, emulation and experiment. Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Ballroom II
