<p>We conduct a general study on the topological properties of Optical Transpose Interconnection Systems (OTIS). We first obtain their basic topological metrics of size, degree, shortest distance, and diameter and then we obtain results related to recursive structure and efficient embedding of meshes, cubes, spanning trees, and cycles. We also present minimal one-to-one routing and optimal broadcasting algorithms and we show how to construct node-disjoint paths between any two nodes of an OTIS network. Recent studies have addressed only particular members of the general class of OTIS networks. In this paper, we present unified tools for obtaining the topological properties of an arbitrary OTIS network based on the properties of the corresponding factor network.</p>
