Ultra high performance digital media applications are now creating the need for new network architectures instead of shared IP links to provide them with dedicated, on-demand high capacity. These demands will be more critical in the future, as applications employing a real time environment become more common. Dynamic optical services at lambda and… (More)
This paper presents a demonstration of an all-optical multicasting scheme for ultra high definition media over wavelength-routed networks, using Self-Phase Modulation. The feasibility of using this technique has been experimentally and theoretically evaluated for streaming rates up to 100Gbps.
