Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate optical packet switching with less than 8 ns switching speed for a 10 Gb/s RZ payload and a 155 Mb/s NRZ label using a 4×4 optical crosspoint switch (OXS) matrix. The wavelength dependence of the OXS is also investigated in terms of the receiver sensitivity and the output OSNR. Very good switching performance can be achieved from 1535 nm to 1561 nm. Our results suggest that the OXS can be a promising device for switching future high speed impulse coded signals.
