Abstract
A kind of optical multi-wavelength label switching adopting Gigabit Ethernet technology is introduced. In this switching, optical header is labeled by several optical pulses at different wavelengths in the same optical communication channel band as optical payload, and a specific Gigabit Ethernet adapter is used as the optical payload sender and receiver. The principle of optical switching is explained, and a demonstration experiment is described.
