Paper Abstract

Metro optical networks have undergone changes in design in recent years, driven by growing traffic demands and the establishment of new technologies driving network architectures. In this paper the drivers are described and the implications for optical amplifiers used in metro optical networks are discussed. Challenges for performance improvements and cost reduction in current networks driving metro amplifiers today, together with opportunities for future metro amplifiers are discussed.
