Abstract : The purpose of the Contention Resolution with Delay Lines (CORD) project was to develop and demonstrate components and methods to resolve the problem of packet contention in very high speed networks, using an all optical approach. The approach demonstrated in the project is based on a concept in which arriving packets are switched and stored in optical delay lines so as to interleave empty and occupied time slots, increasing significantly the network throughput and reducing management complexity.
