Abstract

In this paper, a simple label eraser employing Gaussian apodized fiber Bragg grating (FBG) for all optical label swapping (AOLS) networks is proposed. Relying on the analysis of the payload through multi-stage erasers, this kind of eraser significantly improves the cascadability in comparison with the traditional fiber-loop mirror (FLM) eraser. The influences of the residual labels on the intermediate swapping node labels through the eraser are also investigated. It is shown that the power penalty is only less 1 dB when the optical power ratio of residual label to the new label signal arrives at -8 dB. The influence is negligible due to the sharp notch filtering effect of the Gaussian apodized FBG.
