Dimensioning of Optical Codes in OCDM/WDM Optical Packet Switches

In this paper, the authors investigate the performance of an Optical Code Division Multiplexing/Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM/OCDM) Optical Packet Switch when impairment due to both Multiple Access Interference and Beat noise are taken into account. Analytical models are introduced to dimension the switch resources, in particular the number of optical codes carried on each wavelength. The Packet Loss Probability due to output packet contentions is evaluated as a function of the main switch and traffic parameters when Gold coherent optical codes are adopted.
