Fractional Lambda (λ) Switching (FλS™) adds the necessary efficiency to wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) while preserving the simplicity of whole λ switching. Due to its provisioning capability, from a fraction of STS-1 to a full optical channel capacity, FλS™ will extend the reach of optical networking all the way to the network edges in the metro and enterprise. Finally, FλS™ uniquely enables the implementation of dynamic all-optical switches since its operation does not require (1) optical processing (e.g., packet header processing) and (2) optical buffering.
