A novel architecture is presented for a optoelectronic hybrid packet-switching system (HYPASS) for the distribution of multiple-bit-rate broadband services. HYPASS is based on an input-buffered/output-controlled arbitration protocol. This packet switch uses novel multiwave-length optical networks to accomplish routing and transmission of the packets. This system is specifically adapted to utilize the strengths of both optical and electronic technologies
