In simple wavelength-division multiplexed (WDM) networks, a connection must be established along a route using a common wavelength on all of the links along the route. This constraint may be removed by the introduction of wavelength converters, which are devices which take the data modulated on an input wavelength and transfer it to a different output wavelength. Wavelength converters thus improve... View full abstract»
