The authors study the fundamental properties of the hybrid combination of Optical Circuit Switching (OCS) and Electrical Packet Switching (EPS) used in an ultra-high-speed Local Area Network (LAN) of the future, where chunks of data such as those containing non-compressed super-high-definition images are frequently transmitted as well as text based data. They assume the logical topology of the OCS network in such a LAN to be single star in which the end-to-end connections are provided through a non-blocking optical matrix switch located at the center, while a conventional modest-speed EPS based network such as Ethernet is co-installed to function as another data plane as well as the control plane of the OCS network.
