Paper Abstract

We introduce a general model for the calculation of the optical signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the optical cross-connection (OXC) in optical networks in this paper. The impact of two power equalization schemes on the optical SNR is presented. We also point out the EDFA design principle for optimizing noise character of OXC chains.
