Paper Abstract

The influence of in-band crosstalk on the error performance of all optical networks with different topologies is studied. A statistical crosstalk model is used for evaluating the bit- error rate. The model accounts for optical preamplification. We present a network topology having the best performance while using the largest transmission path.
