Abstract

The next few years should be exciting as the battle of optics versus electronics plays out in developing communication systems. Dynamic reconfigurability, network efficiency, and wavelength management will be the determining factors behind new technology development. Both optically transparent band-switching fabrics and all-optical waveband converters are expected to play an important role in meeting these requirements.
