Abstract

The development of multiwavelength telecommunications networks requires scalable and flexible network elements for switching and access. The Optical Networks Technology Consortium (ONTC) developed an integrated optoelectronic technology base featuring 8-wavelength cross-connects and multiple WDM Network Access Modules. Using these components, we have performed a networking demonstration incorporating channel add/drop, wavelength translation, wavelength multicast, simultaneous analog and digital transmission and switching, at data rates up to 2.5 Gbit/s.
