This report discusses the design, optimization, and implementation of two STARNET-II nodes. Both nodes include optical transceivers, computer interfaces, and software drivers. The optical transceivers are fully interfaced with high-speed STARNET computer interfaces for payload data and with FDDI interfaces for control. This allows to measure networks parameters: packet loss ratio, packet latency, required node buffering size, etc., under realistic traffic conditions with varying bandwidth and burstiness. The results show that, with an EDFA pre-amplifier, STARNET-II power budget is very similar to that of the coherent STARNET-I.
