Paper Abstract

The concept of optically integrated networking is experimentally verified. The operational procedures of the integrated system and methods for signal separation and detection are explained. The degree of degradation of each traffic as a result of the spectral overlapping is analyzed and power penalties evaluated. It is verified that the communication traffic may be recovered with negligible power penalty. The optimum solution in terms of the signal to noise ratio for the sensor traffic is shown to be the whitened matched filter detection. However, this solution results in an unacceptable degree of intersymbol interference (ISI). Thus, a zero forcing ISI solution is also presented and the system performance is re-evaluated taking both the noise and ISI into account.
