Paper Abstract

A high port count wavelength selective switch (HPC-WSS) is a key component when constructing colorless, directionless, and contentionless ROADM because it provides increased flexibility and scalability. We have been developing HPC-WSSs by combining a waveguide-based optical frontend and free-space optics, which we call a spatial and planar optical circuit (SPOC) platform. In this paper, we present an HPC-WSS and a low-loss transponder aggregator based on a SPOC platform, and we also describe the reliability of the frontend, which is a key enabler for the SPOC platform.
