Abstract

We propose and demonstrate label encoding—swapping and transmission for an orthogonally labeled packet by use of a 10-Gbit⁄s amplitude shift keying payload and a 2.5-Gbit⁄s polarization shift keying (PolSK) label. A simple scheme for demodulating and demultiplexing the PolSK label based on an injection-locked Fabry—Perot laser diode is described. The extinction ratio of the newly added PolSK label can be precisely controlled and maintained after the intermediate node.
