Paper Abstract

We review physical layer challenges associated with the emerging class of optically-routed networks. We discuss the influence of reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers (ROADMs), advanced modulation formats, and electronic signal processing techniques at transmitters and receivers to increase optical transparency in optically-routed networks.
