Abstract

Growing needs to transport large amount of data, penetration of multimedia into our daily lives, and quickly
expanding e-Commerce sector triggered an unparallel demand for the new generation of fast, secure, and energy
savvy communication networks.Today we already benefit from many advances which revolutionized data and voice communication.
Commercially deployed Dense Wavelength Division Multiple Access (DWDMA) networks today are capable of
transporting tens of Gigabits of data per second over a single WDM channel thus offering tremendous aggregate
data throughputs over a single optical fibre. As a consequence, new bottlenecks have emerged at the fibre
endpoints where data detection, routing, and switching must take place. Today’s routers use electronics to
process all incoming optical traffic. However the available bandwidth offered by current electronics can no
longer keep up with these rapidly growing demands. To address these challenges and with goal in mind to
eliminate this bottleneck, the research community has been looking long and hard for appropriate alternative
solutions. One of taken approaches can be described as optical signal processing. As we will demonstrate it can
be very powerful tool to improve performance of advanced communication networks.
