Optical Circuit Switching – A Disruptive Trend in Large Scale Datacenter Networks


At the plenary session of 9th International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics (PPAM) in Torun, Poland Dr. Eugen Schenfeld of IBM T.J. Watson Research Center presented his views on the enabling role of Optical Circuit Switching (OCS) in High Performance Computing Networks. This video offers excellent insights into the use cases for OCS in next generation Datacenters.

Copies of the slides from Dr. Schenfeld's presentation can be downloaded from the PPAM Website.
