Abstract

We report the performance of a prototype-hybrid-optoelectronic-router for multi-hop-transmission. A packet-loss-rate<10<sup>-10</sup>due to label-processing-errors and BER<10<sup>-9</sup>are achieved for up-to four-hops. These results, combined with the proposed-TTL-based-multi-hop-transmission-scheme, allow unlimited multi-hop transmission through the OPS-network.
