32-degree OXC with very low add/drop contention

This study reports a colorless/directionless wavelength routing Optical Cross-Connect (OXC) based on multicast switch partially equipped with variable splitters, to achieve a 32-degree OXC with negligible add/drop contention probability and still with reasonable intermediate amplification.

Bell Labs Technical Journal

Bringing scientific and technical findings to the public, serving as a primary conduit to distribute landmark R&D.

The scientific discoveries and technological innovations produced by Bell Labs research and engineering have been critical not only to the evolution of global telecommunications but, more widely, they had a considerable impact on the technological base of the global economy and, indeed, on our daily lives.
