Reconfigurable Optical Networks

Time 12/07/06 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The increasing need for agility, flexible bandwidth allocation and time or service-dependent reconfigurability of services, along with the cost and architectural inefficiencies of early fixed WDM systems has led to the increasing deployment of reconfigurable optical transport systems. This panel will provide an overview of technology and system options of reconfigurable optical transport systems including Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexrs (ROADMs)such as Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) as well as Digital Optical Networks to explore the technology implementations, system and network attributes, and architectural impact on R&E networks.
