Abstract

This paper presents a study on intranode impairments and engineering rules for a label switching router supporting intensity modulated (IM) optical payload data signals labeled by using frequency-shift key (FSK) modulation. Engineering rules and design guidelines are presented regarding the choice of system parameters such as IM extinction ratio, FSK frequency deviation, alignment of optical filtering stages, label swapping, and node cascadability. The presented rules are derived from insights obtained from computer simulations and experimental validation for a 10-Gb/s IM payload signal.
