Hardware-Efficient ROADM Design with Fiber-Core Bypassing for WDM/SDM Networks

Abstract

A SDM/WDM ROADM is proposed with low port-count WSSs. Fiber-core bypassing reduces the number of and port-count of WSSs in the implementation. The design requires less hardware without compromising on network performance with the developed routing core and wavelength assignment algorithm.
