Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate an optical node with time-space-and-
wavelength domain contention resolution, deflection and dropping
capability. The node is composed of an optical buffer based on an optical
crossconnect and a wavelength converter. Although the experimental results
are shown at 10 Gbit/s the bitrate can be increased substantially. Bit-error
rate measurements are shown, sustaining only 3.5 dB power penalty after
10μs of optical buffering and agile wavelength conversion over 18nm span.
