The impact of inband crosstalk on an optical signal passing through optical cross-connect nodes (OXC’s) in wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical network, is studied from the equation of electric field with crosstalk and the corresponding current. The analysis has been done for two SSM (space switching matrix) OXC architecture namely WSXC & WIXC where later one has full wavelength conversion capability. Although WIXC attenuates more crosstalk though it is found that depending on the values of optical propagation delay differences, coherent time of lasers and time duration of one bit of the signal, the required power penalty in WIXC may be greater than that of WSXC in some cases. The analysis has been performed on the measures of Bit Error Rate (BER) and Power Penalty.
