This paper describes a new optical label switching technique; wavelength and pilot tone frequency are combined to form labels that are used to control transport network routing. This technique is very attractive for achieving simple nodes that offer extremely rapid forwarding. Experimental results on the discrimination of optical labels and all-optical label conversion are also presented.
