Paper Abstract

This paper discusses functional requirements of optical path cross-connect (OPXC) node. Generic optical path cross-connect (OPXC) node architectures are introduced, and a new OPXC node architecture is proposed. OPXC node architectures are assessed. A transport system with two new OPXC nodes and a 100km dispersion-shifted fiber are simulated. It shows that the new OPXC architecture is superior to generic OPXC architectures.
