Abstract

A testbed implementation for 100 Gb/s Ethernet Optical Time Division Multiplexing experiments is described along with optical subsystems used in its implementation. Testbed potentialities relating to Wavelength Division Multiplexing and hybrid Wavelength/Polarization Division Multiplexing implementations are also described. First experimental results at 20 Gb/s are carried out demonstrating a power penalty lower than 1 dB.
