Abstract

Optical-layer restoration has been demonstrated with a wavelength-blocker (WB) -based reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM). Two 2 × 2 optical switches with a control circuit were placed before and after a WB-based ROADM to provide automatic path restoration under fiber-failure conditions. Using the proposed node configuration, a 3-node self-healing ring (SHR) network has been implemented to demonstrate the feasibility of the automatic optical-layer restoration. From the results, the restoration time was measured to be ~4 ms under fiber-failure conditions, without any additional power penalty in receiver sensitivity.
