Abstract

This paper discusses several system areas that require development prior to the successful implementation of the lithium niobate technology for photonic switching. The paper first describes several components required in a photonic switching system as well as the status of their development. It then discusses the system architectural areas that either require development or resolution. The final area discussed is the need for viable applications for photonic switching.
