With the transition towards transparent optical networks with increased control and routing performed at the optical layer it is becoming apparent that crosstalk from various sources will be a major limiting factor to network performance. Due to the range of component tolerances it is likely that these interferers will have been produced by a number of components of differing specification. We investigate the network implications of homodyne interferers of non-uniform power distribution, offering limits and illustrating the application of this technique to network node design.
