Abstract
Optical switching is gaining traction for scaling datacenter networks, apace with soaring traffic demand. We experimentally evaluate a slotted optical network architecture capable of dynamically allocating network resources with sub-wavelength granularity. Network operation is demonstrated with multiple communication scenarios, using 200 μs duration optical bursts.
