80Gb/s Multi-wavelength Optical Packet Switching Using PLZT Switch
This paper proposes 80Gb/s multi-wavelength optical packet switching(OPS) using a PLZT switch. The Multi-wavelength OPS Network can achieve low implementation costs compared to existing OPS networks in which the number of wavelengths is large. In this network, the header is processed separately from the payload. The payload is divided into multiple segments. Each segment is then encoded into different wavelengths. After assignment of wavelength to each payload segment, payload segments are multiplexed into an optical signal which is then transmitted through an optical fiber. Therefore, the number of components required for intermediate node functionality stays the same for the number of wavelengths used for payload transmission. This paper shows a fundamental experiment of the Multi-wavelength OPS network using a PLZT switch. PLZT switch provide a fast optical switching with low noise, independent polarization, and low drive voltage. In this paper, we describe the detail of the exper...
