  • Fully Flexible Reconfigurability  Simple, Agile, Self Maintaining Systems
  • Pay as You Grow Scalability  Start with 1 , grow by 1  Seamless upgrade to 100G (efficiently)
  • Efficient Aggreg. & Switching Integrated “ADM-on-a-blade”, BW efficient TRs Sub  switching, Carrier Ethernet Transport
  • Multi-Degree Operation  Both Optical & Electrical Multi-degree Options
  • Automated Network Planning  One time Node Engineering, GMPLS Control and Management Systems Plane & True “Point-and-Click” Provisioning

Key attributes of ROADM Module

  • Fully Flexible, Remotely Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop
  • Automatic power equalization on inputs, outputs, adds, drops
  • Optical Power Monitoring (OPM) of all channels

Key benefits of ROADM Module

  • Elimination of the OEO “Pass-through” tax 
  • Wavelength Reuse 
  • Scaleable Bandwidth (Start with 1 , grow by 1 )
  • Single Wavelength Granularity – No stranded bandwidth
  • Fully Automated Optical Layer

Number of Pass-Thru Channels

Decision depends on:

  • Bit Rate; Number of Wavelengths
  • Topology & Traffic Patterns
  • Switching Need (which determines # of pass-thrus vs # of drops)
  • Size (# nodes and span length)  Amplify? Regen?
  • Total Cost of Ownership (OPEX vs. CAPEX)

All Optical ROADM Advantages:

  • Fully Bit Rate Transparent 1G  10G  100G
  • Per wavelength Scaleable 1 2  . . . 40 
  • Lower Power
  • Fully Automated Optical Layer
  • Low Pass-thru costs

OEO Advantages:

  • Sub-Wavelength Switching
  • Potentially Lower Terminal Costs(at full capacity)
  • Simpler Optical Engineering
  • Simpler Multi-Degree Operation

  • Customers have recognized that low OPEX is now just as important as the lowest CAPEX
  • ROADM Modules are just one part of realizing the Next Generation Agile Optical Network
  • Other technologies such as automated planning tools, widely tunable lasers, optical backplanes, Pluggables, and GMPLScan dramatically simplify planning, operation & management
  • Selection of the right kind of ROADM is crucial to realizing these savings (Colorless Port, modular, WSS based ROADMs are the best choice)
  • These systems must be designed from the ground up to realize their full potential (Bolt-on ROADMs don’t work)
  • Digital ROADM Hybrid Solution may offer the best flexibility and lowest overall cost
