    Abstract

    Just recently, a network that has integrated many optical time-division multiplexing (TDM) technologies such as 100-Gbits/s packet compression and ultrafast demultiplexing has been demonstrated. This article briefly presents the experimental results of this demonstration and addresses the physical layer performance issues including scalability, reliability, and channel constraints of such networks.
