Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the feasibility of a multi-degree colorless, directionless, and contentionless (C/D/C-less) ROADM node composed of high port count wavelength-selective switches and transponder aggregators using silica-based planar lightwave circuit technology. The experimental results show that the introduction of a C/D/C-less function to a multi-degree ROADM node induces no significant penalty in a 127-Gbit/s PDM-QPSK signal transmission.
