Paper Abstract

R-OADMs are a key network element in next generation all-optical networks with applications in both metro and longhaul systems. R-OADMs enable dynamic connectivity in optical networks, enhance network efficiency, make automatic provisioning possible and increase network survivability. They also reduce the network management and operation costs. Switching R-OADMs utilize field-proven technology and components, offering a reliable, low cost solution.
