A new optical cross connect based on WDM and space-division multiplexing is proposed. Optical space-division switches are used to interconnect WDM active routing cross connects to make a large scale optical cross connect employing wavelength reuse. The system can be implemented without the technological challenges faced by simple, WDM optical cross(More)
Performance degradation due to homowavelength crosstalk is evaluated for end-to-end transmissions in multiwavelength optical networks using dynamic wavelength routing. Effects of homowavelength crosstalk on the performance are identified. One effect is crosstalk-spontaneous beat noise, another is possible signal-crosstalk beat interference. With the(More)
