Paper Abstract

Fully reconfigurable broadcast and select OADMs are compared to conventional designs for ULH networks. The feasibility of an 80 x10.7 Gb/s broadcast and select OADM chain with an unregenerated reach exceeding 4160 km is demonstrated. Key engineering issues for widespread commercial deployment of all-optical ULH networks include ASE noise accumulation, filter concatenation effects, dispersion, fiber non-linearity, and crosstalk impairments.
