Paper Abstract

We present a new WADM network node with 50% optical component reduction, 30% smaller footprint, and 35% electrical power saving compared with conventional WADM for optical channel shared protection ring application. It has no single-point-of-failure. Since coherent crosstalk might be a potential issue in this design, we experimentally measured the Q-factor as function of Signal-to-Interference Ratio (SIR) to characterize its performance.
