Paper Abstract

All-optical networks introduce the indisputable solution for future networking especially due to discarding slow and power-demanding electronic processing. Ultrafast data communications ultimately head towards all-optical packet data transfer and optical IP routing. In this paper, nonlinear switching techniques are evaluated with respects to particular types of nonlinear fibers with regards to their specific parameters. Optical packet labeling is discussed, considering label allocation between ITU-grid defined data wavelengths. Possible aspects of a highly-nonlinear fiber, untapered and tapered chalcogenide fibers integration into the optical switch were investigated both theoretically and experimentally.
