The network performance of a single joint multicasting capable optical cross-connect (jMC-OXC) integrating both space- and frequency-splitters is simulated. The results show that the jMC-OXC architecture with limited frequency-splitters can obtain a close performance to that with full frequency splitters. The improvement offered by jMC-OXCs on the performance of multicasting routing is also discussed.
