Scalability of Optical Networks: Crosstalk Limitations
This chapter presents a simple model for the performance analysis of optical networks with regard to linear optical crosstalk and accumulated spontaneous emission noise. The proposed model is useful for evaluating the crosstalk re¬quirements on the devices needed to support an optical network with a certain numbers of nodes and with a given level of error probability.
