3 Introduction Solution: All optical transmission, multiplexing, switching, processing, etc. Multiplexing:- To extend a transmission capacity Electrical Optical Drawbacks with Electrical: Speed limitation beyond 40 Gb/s (80 Gb/s future) of: Electo-optics/opto-electronics devices High power and low noise amplifiers Bandwidth bottleneck due to optical-electronic-optical conversion
5 The total capacity of single-channel OTDM network = DWDM Overcomes non-linear effects associated with WDM: (i) Self Phase Modulation (SPM) – The signal intensity of a given channel modulates its own refractive index, and therefore its phase (ii) Cross Phase Modulation (XPM) – In multi-channel systems, other interfering channels also modulate the refractive index of the desired channel and therefore its phase (iii) Four Wave Mixing (FWM) – Intermodulation products between the WDM channels, as the nonlinearity is quadratic with electric field Less complex end node equipment (single-channel Vs. multi-channels) Can operate at both: 1500 nm 1300 nm OTDM
6 OTDM - Principle of Operation Multiplexing is sequential, and could be carried out in: A bit-by-bit basis (bit interleaving) A packet-by-packet basis (packet interleaving) Clock Receiver Transmitter Clock recovery Light source Light source Data (10 Gb/s) N Network node Network node Drop Add Rx 10 GHz N*10 Gb/s Data (10 Gb/s) OTDM DEMUX OTDM MUX AmplifierModulators Fibre delay line Fibre Span

11 SMZ : Switching Window G 1 and G 2 are the gains profile of the data signal at the output of the SOA1 and SOA2, ΔФ is the phase difference between the data signals, and LEF is linewidth enhancement factor

20 Conclusions An all optical demultiplexer based on SMZ has been implemented in a simulation environment using VPI. BER analysis has been performed. The power penalty of the demultiplexer is mainly due to the ASE noise in the SOAs of the SMZ. The application of low noise SOA will reduce the power penalty. An all optical demultiplexer based on SMZ has been implemented in a simulation environment using VPI. Simulation results show a small power penalty of 0.7 dB for the system with all optical SMZ demultiplexer compared with the system without a demultiplexer.
