We propose a simple, practical approach to eliminate complex label-swapping in label-switched networks: time-stacked multi-wavelength labels. We demonstrate experimentally a two-hop optical network and measure BER performance. Label processing is achieved with low-complexity, off-the-shelf commercial components.
