The side mode suppression ratio of self-seeded, gain-switched optical pulses is shown to be a vital parameter in wavelength division multiplexed communications systems. Experiments carried out on a 2-channel wavelength multiplexed set-up using tunable self-seeded gain-switched pulse sources at 2.5 GHz, have demonstrated the cross-channel interference effects which may be encountered if the side mode suppression ratio of one of the sources becomes degraded
