In all-optical networks with no wavelength conversion, signals must travel on the same wavelength over possibly very long distances. During transmission, the QoS of signals as measured by their Bit Error Rates is degraded not only by the propagation through fibers, but also by small optical leaks from other signals called crosstalk that occur in the nodes… CONTINUE READING
