    Summary form only given. Photonic switching techniques are being explored in most research laboratories worldwide. The possible use of optical switching crosspoints for the purpose of implementing the key switching functions are investigated. Within Alcatel, an original ATM switch architecture, called OASIS, has been investigated and a 4×4 switching matrix operated at 2.5 Gbit/s has been imp... View full abstract»

    Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is a key technique for deployment in the telecommunications network, due to its flexibility, efficient use of bandwidth and future-proof nature. This tutorial introduces the architectural aspects of electronic ATM switches and crossconnects, providing a framework for understanding optical ATM architectures. An ATM switch is dominated in both cost and size by the in... View full abstract»

    The optical integrated broadband communication networks (IBCN) will provide high throughput. Therefore, it is convenient to keep the information in optical form during the switching process to avoid the conversion between high bit rate optical and electronic signals. Furthermore, for high flexibility it is likely that the IBCN will use the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) that provides service ind... View full abstract»

    In ATM networks the virtual channel identifier (VCI) for a connection is used at switches to route cells belonging to the connection along the correct channel. The VCI is also used to provide the appropriate resources for the connection and to check that the connection does not exceed the resources allocated to it. The resource management functions in an ATM network are responsible both for alloca... View full abstract»
