A novel code based all-optical router using MEMS components is presented in this paper. The proposed architecture of the router is given. The router is configured using MEMS optical filters, MEMS optical switches, circulators and combiners. In this paper, simulation is carried out for MEMS optical filters and optical switches using INTELLISUITE package. The electrostatic actuator is modeled using MATLAB Simulink. All-optical networks are optical network environments that exploit the advantages of retaining the signals in the optical domain for switching, routing or distribution, with minimal inclusion of control electronics.
