A metropolitan area network (MAN) architecture that uses the multifiber-cable free topology to provide high-speed datagram and circuit-switching communication services to a large population of stations is presented. Using a combination of space-, wavelength-, and time-division multiplexing (SDM, WDM and TDM), this network architecture provides all-optical transmission media to its stations and can interconnect several thousand stations in a metropolitan region without the need for optical amplification or electrooptical signal regeneration
