Abstract

This letter reports successful routing of 10 X 10 Gb/s multiwavelength optical packets using single-stage semiconductor optical amplifier switches. Performance under switching is assessed with up to ten wavelengths with particular emphasis being placed on the limit of operation. A 15.2-dB power margin is demonstrated which allows at least eight port connections with a commercially available 0-dBm output 10-Gb/s transmitter and —21-dBm sensitivity receiver.
