    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    An overview is given of various optical packet labeling techniques. The architecture and technologies are discussed for optical packet routing nodes using orthogonal labeling with optoelectronic label processing, and for nodes using time-serial labeling with all-optical time-serial label processing. An example of a nearterm application is given, and a comparison of routing technologies is made regarding their cost and reliability aspects.
