Multicasting in the optical layer is anticipated to significantly reduce the cost and complexity for future optical packet switched networks by taking full advantage of the huge fiber bandwidth to support the increasing multicast applications. This paper reviews recent research work on optical multicast packet switching. Key technologies and architectures of wavelength-routed multicast packet switches are discussed in terms of their advantages and challenges.
