DWDM performance of a packaged reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer subsystem supporting modular systems growth


Journal Article

We describe dense wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) operation of a reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer subsystem module employing silica waveguide technology that is suitable for use with both fixed-wavelength and wavelength-selectable add-drop transceivers. We illustrate its use in providing modular growth in high channel-count DWDM systems.
