Wavelength converter plays an important role for increasing the capacity and flexibility of future broadcast network. This paper investigates the performance of a 10Gb/s the SOA based FWM wavelength converter. All performances are analyzed in terms of its shifted wavelength conversion efficiency, Q-factors and converted signal powers. The converters are modeled and simulated using Optisystem7 Software, by varying the probe signal wavelength and power. It was found that conversion efficiency and OSNR of the converted signal both decreased at large detuning wavelengths. Similarly, higher total SOA input powers worsened the conversion efficiency, but steadily improved the OSNR. FWM wavelength converter had the lowest conversion efficiency for CW sources.
