Paper Abstract

We propose distributed Raman amplifiers (DRAs) for optical add/drop multiplexing (OADM) networks in order to suppress optical surges due to add/drop multiplexing. We confirmed that the fast transient characteristic of distributed Raman amplifier realizes no surviving channel degradation under add/drop power fluctuation condition as well as fine band upgradability to support "pay-as-you-grow" feature. And we also propose some application in metro area network by using DRAs.
