We propose and validate experimentally a Time-to-Live signaling system for an Optical Label Swapping scheme based on 10 Gbit/s DPSK packets and with 100 Mbit/s SCM label. The proposed scheme allows fast packet discarding by using a 3.5 GHz sub-carrier tone. DPSK payload has only a 2 dB power penalty at 10 –9 bit error-rate after superimposing the SCM and TTL labeling signal.
