We present the results of a transmission experiment, over 110 km of field installed fiber, for an all-optical 160 Gb/s packet switching system. The system uses in-band optical labels which are processed entirely in the optical domain using a narrow-band all-optical filter. The label decision information is stored by an optical flip-flop, which output controls a high-speed wavelength converter based on ultra-fast cross-phase modulation in a single semiconductor optical amplifier. The packet switched node is located in between two different fiber sections, each having a length of 54.3-km. The field installed fibers are located around the city of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The results show how the all-optical switch can effectively route the packets based on the optical information and that such packets may be transmitted across the fiber with an acceptable penalty level.
