Abstract

In this paper, we analyze the performance of a reliable, scalable, and cost-effective switchless wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) network based on an arrayed waveguide grating (AWG). The network efficiency is significantly increased by spatially reusing wavelengths and exploiting multiple free spectral ranges (FSRs) of the AWG employed in the architecture. We have analyzed the performance of this architecture by simulating in <TEX>$Optsim^{TM}$</TEX> with a control channel which exploits the broadband light source, i.e., an LED. The data was successfully transmitted to a distance of 30 km without using any EDFA's in the network, with a reasonable BER of <TEX>$4.0530{\times}10^{-14}$</TEX>. We have analyzed the performance of this architecture with a control channel which exploits the broadband light source, i.e., an LED, by simulating in <TEX>$Optsim^{TM}$</TEX>.
