Abstract

The architecture of and the corresponding control algorithm for a devised optical cross-connect, limitedrange wavelength converision wavelength interchangeable cross-connect (L-WIXC), are presented. The performances of L-WIXC including blocking probability, switching time, and throughput are simulated. Cost comparison with wavelength selective cross-connect (WSXC) and WIXC is calculated. Key optical parameters, such as crosstalk, eye diagram, bit error rate, and linear Q factor, are measured and discussed.
