We experimentally demonstrate a petabit-class hierarchical SDM switching node with granularity from 10 Tb/s to 1 Pb/s. We address spatial bypassing network scenarios, optical channel grooming, spatial multiplex section protection switching, and optical channels using coupled and uncoupled spatial channels.
