A low cost, simple bit-error monitoring system is realized all-optically using an inverted wavelength-converter and optical NOR-gate with different operating thresholds. Real-time optical monitoring signal is generated which indicates the positions and duration of bit/burst errors in 10 Gb/s signal.
