Paper Abstract

A proposed high capacity optical Coherent Multi-Carrier (CMC) switching node for broad-band application is described. The switching of signals is performed in the optical domain by routing the carriers through broadband and selective stars, by frequency conversion and tunable heterodyn-receivers. Experimental results of a switching element are presented and a simple calculation shows, that more than 10,000 broadband carriers could be processed.
