Abstract

Our prototype of a fully-functional Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switch validates the design of a 128 Gb/s optoelectronic ATM switch. Optoelectronics, rather than all optical componets, are used to simutaneously address all of the specific requirements mandated by the ATM protocol. In this paper, we present the Illinois Pulsar-based Optical Interconnect (iPOINT) testbed, and present our results obtained for the prototype switch in a working environment consisting of an optical network of Sun SPARCStations and other local and wide-area ATM switches.
