— One drawback to deploying WDM SONET rings is the potentially large amount of equipment necessary for their deployment. Wavelength-add/drop multiplexers potentially reduce the amount of required SONET terminal equipment by allowing individual wavelengths to optically bypass a node rather than being electronically terminated. We have quantified the maximum terminal-equipment savings attainable using wavelength-add/drop for rings carrying uniform traffic and rings carrying distance-dependent… CONTINUE READING
