Multihop networks are strong candidates for the implementation of high-speed networks, ranging from back-plane networks for cluster computing to metropolitan-area networks. Besides using deflection routing for contention resolution, optical buffering may be used to enhance the performance of optical multihop networks and to reduce or even eliminate the need for optical-electrical conversions. The enhancements obtained by augmenting traditional MSN (Manhattan Street Networks) with optical buffering are evaluated. The MSN considered here is based on a novel 6 × 6 optical switching node with up to two fiber delay loops. Impact of the parameters associated with optical buttering, such as the number of delay loops and the loop length, are discussed in detail.
