The photonic transport network (PTN) based on wavelength division multiplexing and wavelength routing technologies plays an important role in large-capacity multimedia communications. The photonic transport system (PTS), which routes or cross-connects multiple wavelengths, is the key network element to realize the PTN. A PTS based on the virtual wavelength path (VWP) concept offers many benefits for network operation. The application of opto-electronic-type wavelength switchable converters to a VWP-PTS is discussed.
