Summary: We present architecture and experimental results for an high-speed digital node controller developed in the “RINGO” project, a demonstrator of a next-generation ultra-high capacity network based on WDM optical fiber ring. The MAC protocol and other controller functions have been developed on a high capacity FPGA, which supports efficient input queuing and multicast capabilities by handling several concurrent real time processes.
