Abstmct- An all-optical long-distance (>30 km) bit-pdel wavelengtb division multiplexed (WDM) single-fiber link with 12 bit-parallel channels having 1 Gbytds capacity has been designed. That system functionally resembles an optical fiber ribbon cable, except that all the bits pass on one fiber-optic waveguide. This single-fiber bit parallel wavelength link can be used to extend the (speed x distance) product of emerging cluster computer networks, such as, the MyriNet, SCI, Hippi-6400, ShufReNet, etc. Here, the detailed design of this link using the commercially available Corning DS (dispersion-shifted) fiber is given. To demonstrate the viability of this Link, two WDM channels at wavelengths 1530 and 1545 nm CaTlYing 1 11s pulses on each channel were sent through a single 25Akm long Corning support cluster computing, and to provide salable external UO networks for clusters of massively parallel processor (MPP
