An optical switch capable of routing a 3-Gb/s bit stream in 10-ns packets between ten different destinations is demonstrated. Switching time between destinations is 2 ns. The switch is based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology. It uses a fast tunable laser capable of addressing 24 discrete optical frequencies spaced by 40 GHz.<>
