Breakthrough technologies are described for switching hardware and system integration that will enable the development of a Tbit/s-class switching system for multi-service backbone networks. Also described is a switching architecture that is familiar with IP traffic while retaining the advantages of a conventional ATM switch. Following papers describe the newly developed 640-Gbit/s OPTIMA (OPTically Interconnected Multi-stage ATM switch architecture) switching system, including the 640-Gbit/s switching system architecture, 80-Gbit/s switch-element architecture, hardware architecture, and packaging technique.
