A 72×72 wavelength-selective crossconnect switch that was scalable to 1296×1296 with available planar waveguide and MEMS technology, was demonstrated. Silica-on-silicon wavelength multiplexers with integrated monitoring taps and a MEMS micromirror array were assembled in a hybrid three dimensional beam steering crossconnects. The switch operated penalty free at 10 Gbit/s and provided integrated power monitoring taps.
