Abstract-We demonstrated optical packet switching and buffering operation of a DWDM/NRZ-DPSK optical packet, whose payload-data-rate is 640 Gbit/s (64-wavelength ?? 10 Gbit/s), for transparent optical packet switch systems for the first time. Error-free (bit-error-rate <10-9) operation including 200-Gchip/s PSK optical label processing was achieved for all 64-wavelength-channel 10 Gbit/s DPSK packet-payloads. In addition, the higher tolerance of DPSK format for packet power fluctuation compared with OOK one was verified in an optical packet switch system.
