This paper deals with the design and simulation of an optical gigabit Ethernet using OPTSIM 3.6 packet software. The main aim of the proposed design is to build a MAN optical network using one-gigabit Ethernet technique, and what are the necessary requirements to build these networks. As a case study, all states center are connected as Star – Bus topology using layer2 and layer3 optical switches. In addition, in this paper one-gigabit optical transmitter and receiver are designed to work as a node in the network topology. Further more, the benefits of using L- Band wavelength for transmission take in consider the linear and non-linear effects on fiber optic is presented.
