Is ROADM component present in OptiSystem 13? Can we use ROADM as an optical switch and perform switching?

      Hi Burhan,

      ROADM is not available in OptiSystem 13.0.3 library, but if it helps, here is a link to design of Configurable OADM provided by Optiwave:

      Configurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer

      You can find the sample relating to the link in OptiSystem samples.

      Regards

        If you haven’t installed OptiSystem samples, you should install them first. After the installation, you just need to open the samples folder (by default in the documents folder) and find the “4×4 COADM” sample that is being discussed in the link I provided in my former comment in “WDM Systems” folder.

        Hi Burhan,

        Reconfidgurable OADM has the ability to remotely switch traffic, and it makes use of wavelength selective switching (which is an active component). Once the configuration for a system is done, using ROADM the configuration can be changed according to traffic requirements of the network and so on.

        Regards

        As I mentioned in my above comment, when the configuration for a system is done, using Reconfigurable-OADM the configuration can be changed according to traffic requirements of the network. Reconfiguration cannot be done in COADM whereas it can be done in ROADM according to this explanation.

        Regards
