1. An optical system, comprising:
an optical remodulator comprising a client-side, ?Ti, and a line-side, ?j, with electrical signal processing between the client-side and the line-side, wherein ?Ti is different from ?j, with each having a same information-bearing signal thereon,
wherein the line-side is part of a wavelength division multiplexing system and wherein the client-side utilizes a wavelength
of about 1300 to 1600 nm,
wherein the client-side operates a first protocol and the line-side operates a second protocol, wherein the first protocol
is any of SONET, SDH, OTN, ATM, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel, and wherein the second protocol is any of SONET, SDH, OTN, and
wherein the client-side comprises a network element operating at any of layer one, layer two, and/or layer three, and wherein
the line-side forms a wave division multiplexing layer separate from the layer one, layer two, and/or layer three.
