Paper Abstract

Several network testbeds use optical labels as a means of routing data through a network. The EU funded IST project STOLAS is producing one such network testbed which uses an optical label carried by a frequency shift keyed (FSK) modulation of the optical carrier at 75 Mb/s as an orthogonal channel to the 10 Gb/s intensity modulation used to carry the data. This paper presents the results of some transmission experiments on one of the laser transmitters used to supply the IM and FSK modulated signal within the network. In particular the paper investigates the cross-talk between the two theoretically orthogonal modulation channels of IM and FSK and the effect on bit error rate (BER).
