    Abstract

    Lightwave networks can be constructed by exploiting the capabilities of emerging optical technology. One of these technologies is the WDM cross-connect star coupler. This device based on integrating a two-dimensional array of Bragg diffraction cells, can be used in various wavelength routing network application to overcome the major problems related to the conventional star coupler. In this paper we propose a new logical topology, the bilayered ShuffleNet, which is shown to achieve higher efficiency compared to the conventional ShuffleNet. We also present a method of using the WDM cross-connect star coupler in the implementation of the bilayered ShuffleNet.
