	  abstract     = {We evaluate the average energy consumption per bit
in Optical Packet Switches equipped with BENES switching fabric
realized in Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) technology. We
also study the impact that the Amplifier Spontaneous Emission
(ASE) noise generated by a transmission system has on the power
consumption of the BENES switches due to the gain saturation of the
SOAs used to realize the switching fabric. As a matter of example for
32×32 switches supporting 64 wavelengths and offered traffic equal
to 0,8, the average energy consumption per bit is 2, 34 · 10-1 nJ/bit
and increases if ASE noise introduced by the transmission systems
is increased.},
