All-optical wavelength conversion with multicasting capabilities is a desired feature in optical label swapping packet-switched networks, in order to facilitate broadcast services. The time-serial IM/IM modulation format for payload/label encoding is a promising technique for optical label switching, because it enables to. exploit fully alloptical processing techniques. We report on the experimental demonstration of wavelength multicasting to three different channels simultaneously of a signal at 10 Gbit/s by using four wave mixing in a highly nonlinear fiber. The channels are spaced by 200 GHz, in compliance with the JTU grid.
