Abstract

We present two hybrid fabrics integrating optical and electronic switches with SDN, and a novel approach improving the scaling of fast optical switches. C-Share reroute flows through optical switches increasing network performance. E-WDM exploits the optical switch transparency by emulating wavelength switching in electronic switches.
