Abstract

We report the first dynamically reconfigurable ULH network demonstration using “broadcast & select” OADM architecture. We demonstrate 80x10.7 Gb/s NRZ C-band DWDM networking over 4160km of all-Raman amplified dispersion-managed fiber and 13 concatenated OADMs with 2dB Q-margin for 10<sup>-15</sup> BER operation.
