All-optical grooming for 100 Gbit/s ethernet


A regenerative optical grooming switch for interconnecting 100 Gbit/s networks with lower bit-rate networks and switching functionality in time, space and wavelength domain is demonstrated. Lab and field demonstrations show the feasibility of the new concept. Q-factors above 20 dB are reported.
