Future photonic networks will perform routing and switching in the optical layer based upon ultrafast photonic processing. A hierarchical hybrid optical time division multiplexing/wavelength division multiplexing (OTDM/WDM) network is proposed for the future core photonic network. As enabling technologies for the hierarchical hybrid OTDM/WDM network, C- and L wavelength-band signal generation, OTDM-WDM multiplexing format conversions, and ultrafast wavelength-band conversions are demonstrated.
