Based on an approach for averaging solution of rate equations over possible ensemble configurations, we derive integral equation for population inversion taking into account nonlinear homogeneous upconversion and migration in Er3+-doped silica waveguides for the case of 1480-nm CW excitation switch-off (CWES) regime. Because of pump for CWES is off, only migration tends to refill the holes in excitation distribution caused by upconversion. Thus the upconversion is weaker than that for the CW operation, except for t=0 and t-->infinity, upconversion.
