Paper Abstract

The several optical components and modules technologies are reviewed for use in Re-configurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexter (ROADM) systems in Next Generation Network (NGN) ring networks. Especially, Athermal-AWG, PLC-ROADM and MEMS-WSS are now deployed in the actual field because of its maturity, good performance and highly reliability. In this paper, we introduced the technologies and actual performance and reliability data for actual use. In the near future, ROADM application must be more advanced and complex with these technologies and new technologies.
