Abstract: We describe Peta-bit-per-second (Pb/s) scale space-division-multiplexed (SDM) transmission technologies proposed to increase the capacity of wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) optical networks and satisfy the ever-increasing traffic demand. We also present a range of optical integrated network technologies capable of providing multi-granular switching capacity and network node flexibility. Such technologies allow data service diversification and can tolerate rapid traffic fluctuations in WDM and/or SDM networks.

Biography: Naoya Wada received the B.E., M.E., and Dr.Eng. degrees in electronics from Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, in 1991, 1993, and 1996, respectively. In 1996, he joined the Communications Research Laboratory, Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, Tokyo, Japan, where he conducted research on optical packet switching (OPS) , optical processing system, burst-mode optical communication technologies, huge capacity optical transmission based on multi-core fiber. He is currently Director General of Network System Research Institute, NICT. He is a member of the IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Photonics, IEICE, the Japan Society of Applied Physics, and the Optical Society of Japan.
