We have developed an 8x8 hybrid optoelectronic router prototype that optimally utilizes both optical and electrical technologies, with the ability to process 10-Gbps arbitrary-length asynchronous optical packets. With it, we demonstrate error-free operation and dramatically reduced power and latency.
