Abstract

In this paper, an experimental analysis of the gating characteristics of the TOAD for different granularities (tributary bitrates) of an OTDM stream is presented. This study is based on the evaluation of the time-domain response (i.e. the switching window) and Contrast Ratio (CR) measurements of the dropped tributary and the residual (through) signal. The minimum obtainable switch window is approximately 6 ps for the TOAD under investigation and allows deployment in a 160 Gbit/s environment. Applying a TOAD in an OTDM add/drop node is possible with optical granularities up to 2.5 Gbit/s. Application as an OTDM demultiplexer is possible at higher granularities (10 Gbit/s) at the expense of reduced CR of the dropped tributary.
