A design of a nonblocking, all-optical lightpath concentrator using wavelength exchanging optical crossbars and WDM crossbar switches is presented. The proposed concentrator is highly scalable, cost-efficient, and can switch signals in both space and wavelength domains without requiring a separate wavelength conversion stage.
