Optical Cross Connects Architecture with per-Node Add&Drop Functionality

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We propose a cost-effective implementation of reconfigurable add&drop functionality in Optical Cross Connects based on the concept of common add&drop in the node (OXC with per-Node Add&Drop, OXC-NAD). The proposed architecture constrains usable transponders wavelengths, but the analysis on significant mesh topologies demonstrates that this does not affect the behavior of the transparent networks. The OXC-NAD is shown to also significantly reduce the node cost irrespective of the nodal degree.
