A Programmable ROADM System for SDM/WDM Networks

Abstract

This paper proposed and evaluated a programmable ROADM system for MCF-based 1 SDM/WDM networks. The proposed ROADM system employing both bypass connection and 2 Route-and-Select wavelength switching enables adaptable virtual topology in optical networks by 3 dynamically configuring bypass connection cores. The simulation results confirmed this ROADM 4 system could provide acceptable performance with an around 10-20 % reduction in the total cost 5 including the number of ports and WSSs by comparing with a fully flexible SDM/WDM ROADM 6 system, which can’t be implemented due to the required extremely high-port-count WSSs.
