Abstract: As bandwidth consumption continues to explode in a challenging economic environment, service providers and enterprises need to maximize their network’s efficiency – deliver more with less. Effective use of Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs) is key to this strategy. Increasing the flexibility, scalability and remote configurability of a network lowers Operational Expenses (OPEX). Using ROADMs, a bandwidth provider can quickly turn up new services, alter networks as needed, protect his revenue stream and reduce truck rolls through remote management ROADM, short for reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer, is a form of optical add-drop multiplexer that adds the ability to remotely switch traffic from a wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) system at the wavelength layer. WDM technology has brought more than an order-of-magnitude increase in the amount of bandwidth that can be transported over fiber In the fiber optic network which uses wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) is used to remotely add, block, pass or redirect modulated light emissions-infrared and visible-within a range of wavelengths. With ROADM devices, signal switching doesn’t need optical-to-electric and electric-to-optical conversions. Instead, outgoing light beams can be generated, incoming beams could be terminated or beams could be passed through the device unmodified. This is achieved through wavelength-selective switch (WSS) components within the device.
