In this paper, we have suggested a novel way to implement the interconnections in the Multi-Mesh (MM) network using optical devices. In a traditional, copper-based approach, the long connections between processors in an interconnection network create major limitations with respect to the speed of communication. Our approach for inter-block communication in a MM uses optical communication using Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). Rather than passive stars or free-space optics, used to implement some recent optoelectronic communication schemes for interconnection networks, this design uses wavelength routed fiber-based networks.
