This paper describes the demonstration of a multiple-granularity OXC architecture towards 100-Tbit/s scalability. The architecture provides waveband and wavelength-grooming functions with port-count scalability and an optical virtual-concatenation function enabling bulk-data transmission using multiple wavelength channels.
