Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the model of switching matrix based on the XPM in SOA for optical packet-switched networks, which is used to evaluate its performance. Cross-talk-induced bit error rate (BER), packet error rate (PER) and cascadability under unbalanced traffic are examined, which proves to be relevant to the properties of signal pulse such as initial chirp, shape and bit-rate. Several rules are drawn to facilitate the design of SOA-based switching matrix under unbalanced traffic.
