Abstract

<p><a href="http://www.osa-jon.org/virtual_issue.cfm?vid=26">Feature Issue on Photonics in Switching</a></p>Several optical add-drop multiplexers (OADM) and optical cross-connect (OXC) architectures and technologies have been proposed in the literature and are being used in existing networks. We present a comparison of these architectures and technologies from the failure behavior point of view, including power drop, in-band and out-band jamming, and wavelength misalignment.
