A novel two-level optical labeling method for highly efficient transport of IP packets through WDM networks is proposed. By assigning both a wavelength label and a label in DPSK or FSK format (orthogonal to the ASK format of the data payload), packets can be routed transparently through end-to-end optical paths. The design of a duallabel controlled optical router is presented, which features label swapping and multicasting. Key element is an optically integrated wavelength converter and phase modulator. This work is part of the new IST project STOLAS – Switching Technologies for Optically Labeled Signals.
