The design of resonator-based Kerr-nonlinear functionalities for all-optical signal processing is investigated based on an analytical 1D model. The influence of different device parameters is analysed and aspects of design optimization are discussed. It is shown that important trade-offs are to be made in terms of power budget, device length and signal bandwidth, making these functionalities for the moment only feasible for DWDM systems. Several issues concerning nonlinear integration in standard technologies are highlighted.
