A wavelength conversion device was demonstrated at the bit rate of 2.488 Gb/s with 2R (reamplification and reshaping) regenerative properties. A low frequency pilot tone was removed during the conversion process and a new one added. The wavelength converter is shown to operate well at 10 Gb/s, and tone identification/replacement should also be possible at this data rate.
