We experimentally demonstrate all-optical 2 7 1 pseudorandom bit sequence data multiplexing using wavelength conversion, interchannel chromatic dispersion, and intrachannel dispersion compensation. Bit-rate tuning capability is demonstrated with 10–20 and 20 40 Gbits s multiplexing, achieving a bit-error rate < 10 9 for both rates.
