Abstract
Optical Packet Switching can cope well with the bursty nature of data traffic that is becoming predominant. OPS nodes will be used in a network, where traffic demand will show a growth evolution. In stead of immediately installing a large OPS node that is only sparsely used in the first years, we prefer solutions allowing the switch to grow as traffic demand grows. We look into modular, multi-stage solutions for two well-known OPS node designs. We evaluate the cost evolution for different design choices, using several scenarios. We show that multistage OPS node designs can result in cheaper, modular upgradeable designs.
