Paper Abstract

An overview of a wide choice of current technologies and components suitable for the use of 160 Gbit/s optical time domain multiplexing (OTDM) systems is given. A selection of the presented components were used to implement a 160 Gbit/s network. In a field trial on BT’s network we demonstrated transmission over 550 km and a fully operating OTDM network including a time domain add-drop multiplexer (TD-OADM) at a data rate of 160 Gbit/s at a single wavelength and a tributary data rate of 10 Gbit/s.
