Paper Abstract

Future photonic networks will perform routing and switching in the optical layer by use of ultrafast photonic processing. An ultra-wideband hierarchical hybrid optical time division multiplexing/wavelength division multiplexing (OTDM/WDM) network is proposed for the future core photonic network. As its enabling technologies, continuous C- and L-wavelength-band signal generation, OTDM-WDM multiplexing format conversions, and OTDM wavelength-band conversions are demonstrated.
