Abstract

See full text

To minimize cabling in a spine-and-leaf network, optical interconnection assemblies and related components, methods and systems disclosed herein have a plurality of spine-side multiplexer/demultiplexer pairs for communicating multiplexed communications signals between the optical interconnection assembly and one or more spine switches, and a plurality of leaf-side multiplexer/demultiplexer pairs for communicating multiplexed communications signals between the optical interconnection assembly and one or more leaf switches. Within the optical interconnection assembly, each spine-side demultiplexer is connected to every leaf-side multiplexer via at least one path, and each leaf-side demultiplexer is connected to every spine-side multiplexer via at least one path. In this manner, the optical interconnection assembly provides at least one discrete channel from each leaf switch to every spine switch, and vice versa. Also in this manner, each spine switch is connected directly to the optical interconnection assembly, and each leaf switch is also connected directly to the optical interconnection assembly.
