Title (EN) CONFIGURABLE POINT-TO-POINT OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM BETWEEN SERVERS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE COMMUNICATIONS OPTIQUES POINT À POINT CONFIGURABLE ENTRE SERVEURS
Abstract:
(EN) A configurable optical communications system (100) for establishing point-to-point communications between multiple computer servers (160) coupled to a common midplane or backplane communications bus (132), wherein at least two of the servers include an optical input/output device (170) for sending and receiving an optical signal (112). The system further includes an optical communications pathway (140) that is configured to carry the optical signal, and at least two pivotable mirrors (150) located within the optical pathway and in-line with the optical input/output devices that are selectively orientated to direct the optical signal between the optical input/output devices to establish the point-to-point communication between the at least two servers.
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à un système de communications optiques (100) pouvant être configuré destiné à établir des communications point à point entre de multiples serveurs d'ordinateurs (160) couplés à un bus de communication (132) de fond de panier central ou de fond de panier commun, deux au moins des serveurs comprenant un dispositif d'entrée/sortie optique (170) destiné à envoyer et à recevoir un signal optique (112). Le système comprend en outre un chemin de communications optiques (140) configuré de manière à porter le signal optique et au moins deux miroirs pouvant pivoter (150) situés dans le chemin optique et alignés avec les dispositifs d'entrée/sortie optiques qui sont orientés de manière sélective de façon à diriger le signal optique entre les dispositifs d'entrée/sortie optiques de manière à établir la communication point à point entre les deux serveurs ou plus.
