This paper considers the performance of fixed and incremental feedback buffers in an optical switch, and compares this with the performance of a feedback buffer configuration implementing switchable delay lines. It is shown that for a medium sized switch the switchable delay line implementation outperforms the other configurations, although for a large switch, the incremental structure has the best performance.
