"With the Xerox switch, an entire R-OADM can be compressed into 2 cm x 1.5 cm in size, and can direct enormous amounts of data in ways that currently require large racks of assembled equipment," Kubby said.
The combination of high wavelength density, long reach and reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers (R-OADMs) makes it easy and economical to build fully protected business services networks that connect any node to any node on demand.
Reconfigurability is provided by R-OADMS, tunable receivers that remotely and instantaneously tune to the desired wavelength.
