Is it possible to use a bare metal switch circuit switching its ports to emulate a reconfigurable PHY level switching between input ports?
Is doing so needs advanced operating systems or just using Open Network linux is sufficient?
Is there a less wasteful way for doing this with another hardware of comparable price and performance(48*10G+4*40G)?
as stated in comments I need the ability of dynamically change the connections between in ports and out ports. actually i want to send bundles of output ports to some transponders and then some MUXes and then send this WDM outputs to different directions. The role of switch is not adding regeneration as TPXs do 3R regenration. its role is adding reconfigurablity. here is a demonstration of what i am thinking of:
