The authors present a novel concept of employing optical wavelength packet switching in radio-over-fiber access networks. In such a system, the tunable laser (TL) would be employed as a transmitter in the central station. The optical carrier generated by this device would be externally modulated with the data signal upconverted to an RF frequency before being sent to the appropriate base station (BS). If each of the BSs is assigned a unique wavelength, the addressing and routing of traffic could be performed on a packet-by-packet basis with the TL switching between the wavelength assigned to different BSs
