Performance Evaluation of the OCDM/WDM Technique for Optical Packet Switches
The performance of the Optical Code Division Multiplexing/Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM/OCDM) technique for Optical Packet Switch is investigated. The impact on the performance of the impairment due to both Multiple Access Interference and Beat noise is studied. 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. The switching speed of Internet router directly impacts the performance of the entire network.
