Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a reader for digital lightpath labels that can be clipped onto a fiber to allow identification of lightpaths in the fiber without disturbing service traffic. Label error-rate measurements of labeled signals at ~10Gb/s confirm that simple fiber bends serve as effective clip-on power taps.
