Paper Abstract

Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs) are going to change the landscape for future metro optical networks. In this paper, we present the detailed design layouts for next generation metro optical network equipped with the most advanced 3rd generation ROADM modules. Mathematical equations have been developed to design complex network architecture based on traffic demand and the characteristics of network equipments. Our proposed design layout for next generation network alleviates some conventional design concepts that will ultimately reduce the capital- and operational-expenditure for the overall network.
