A novel wavelength converter based on cross-polarization modulation is optimized for all-optical network application. Stable error-free application result is achieved for 10 Gbit/s NRZ signal after transmission through 80 km single-mode fibers between network nodes without dispersion compensation.
A distribute optical network protocol based on flooding search combined with the Bellman-Ford algorithm is proposed in this paper. To describe the protocol and research its performance, a model based on the Network Simulator was built up to investigate the feasibility and performance of the protocol in terms of the function of route selecting and creating. And the model was used to simulate the route selecting and creating process for the connection request in an autonomous system and between different autonomous systems, as well as the WP and VWP project for the multi-wavelength. Simulation results were analyzed.
