Abstract

Demonstration of all-optical packet switching at 160 Gb/s over a total of 110-km field installed optical fiber link is reported. The packet switch architecture is based solely on photonic circuits: an optical filter as label processor, an all-optical flip-flop as memory element and an ultrafast wavelength converter as router. Both flip-flop and wavelength converter uses semiconductor optical amplifiers which allows for photonic integration. The switch operates at low power levels and shows potential scalability. Error-free operation is shown without forward error correction technology.
