A Taxonomical Consideration of Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers

A Taxonomical Consideration of Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers The use of optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs) is considered as a possible way to save the number of transponders required at a network node by optically bypassing wavelengths that do not need to be dropped. There are many different flavors of OADMs offered by vendors. In this paper, we give a taxonomy of OADMs from the perspectives of both technology considerations and possible implications on network performance. The purpose of the taxonomy is to serve as a frame work for cost and performance studies on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical transmission systems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

The use of optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs) is considered as a possible way to save the number of transponders required at a network node by optically bypassing wavelengths that do not need to be dropped. There are many different flavors of OADMs offered by vendors. In this paper, we give a taxonomy of OADMs from the perspectives of both technology considerations and possible implications on network performance. The purpose of the taxonomy is to serve as a frame work for cost and performance studies on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical transmission systems.
