Abstract

In this paper, we propose and experimentally
demonstrate simultaneous format and wavelength conversion of
multiple fragmented signals suitable for gridless and multigranular
networks. Conversion of NRZ and large-RZ to short-
RZ-OOK by means of a single commercial Quad SOA-MZI is
demonstrated for grooming 85.4 Gb/s frame. The output RZOOK
signal is suitable for further tributary multiplexing onto a
170.8 Gb/s OTDM stream. The resultant OTDM channel is
transmitted over a 110-km dark fiber link.
