Scaling Internet Routers Using Optics


Isaac Keslassy

Stanford University

About the talk:
 
The "Optics in Routers" project is a collaborative Stanford research work, involving the teams of Profs. Mark Horowitz, Nick McKeown,  David Miller, and Olav Solgaard. The objective of this project is to design a 100Tb/s Internet router with an optical switch fabric that guarantees 100% throughput for all traffic. In my talk, I will introduce the load-balanced switch architecture, and study how we can practically use it.
