Impact of in-band and inter-band crosstalk due to multiwavelength optical cross-connect in a WDM network

Abstract

An analytical approach is developed to evaluate the impact of in-band and inter-band crosstalk on the bit error rate (BER) performance due to a multi-wavelength optical cross-connect (OXC) in a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) network. BER performance and power penalty results are numerically evaluated at a bit rate of 10 Gb/s and the factors that… (More)
