Optical packets with multirate payloads have been demonstrated for optical label switching (OLS) and transport in a multihop dense wavelength-division-multiplexed (DWDM) optical network with over 200 km fiber and a low-power penalty for the first time. The key functions for label generation, swapping, and switching have been successfully realized.
