A 72×72 wavelength-selective crossconnect switch, that is scalable to 1296×1296 with current technology, is presented. Silica-on-silicon wavelength multiplexers with integrated monitoring taps and a MEMS micromirror array were assembled in a hybrid 3D beam steering crossconnect having 20 dB insertion loss, 100 GHz channel spacing and 30 GHz passbands.
