MCS Multicast Switch for Next Generation ROADM

Press release from: HYC Co., Ltd

Multicast optical switch(MCS)is based on PLC technology and MEMS technology,which can route any optical input to any output. It is a key component in the next generation of Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) system.

What is ROADM?
ROADM is one of the Optical Add-Drop Multiplexers (OADMs) that add or remove one or more optical signals from wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transmission network link. The device can be used in Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems. It allows for remote configuration and reconfiguration and can redirect add/drop signal wavelength. That is to say, in the middle of the network line, the wavelength of the add or drop signal can be redistributed to achieve flexible network configuration.

Multicast optical switch(MCS)is one of the core devices in the reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplex system. Coupled with the wavelength selective switch (WSS), Multicast switches are designed to be used in a next-generation ROADM node to achieve wavelength independent, direction independent, and no conflicts. Directing any wavelength to any port is the wavelength independent; Accepting input wavelength channels from multiple different directions is the direction independent; Ability to drop two identical wavelengths from different directions through the same switch is the no conflicts. This is of great significance for achieving flexibility and low cost of network construction.

The structure of MCS

As shown in the figure, two independent MCS units are integrated into a single module; Each unit is composed of M independent 1x16 PLC Splitters and N independent 1x8 MEMS optical switches. M×N MCS helps to route optical direction from N add(or drop) to M ports.

With the continuous expansion of network scale and the increasing demand for cross nodes and capacity of upper and lower channels, WSS+MCS will be a smarter choice for a new generation of CDC-ROADM by telecom operators and system operators. Simple, flexible and unrestricted network resource allocation capabilities, and greatly reduce the operating costs of operators.

What is C band and L band in WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing)?
WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) is a transmission technology that uses a single optical fiber to simultaneously transmit multiple optical carriers of different wavelengths in optical fiber communications. When the wavelength of light is different, the transmission loss in the fiber is also different. In order to reduce the fiber loss, it’s important to find the most suitable transmission wavelength. After a long period of exploration and testing, light with a
A Comprehensive Overview of APON,BPON,EPON,GPON
PON stands for passive optical network, which means that the ODN (optical distribution network) between the OLT (optical line terminal) and the ONU (optical network unit) does not have any active equipment, and only uses optical fibers and passive components.PON mainly uses a point-to-multipoint network structure, which is the main technology to realize FTTB / FTTH. PON technology contains a lot of content, and iteratively updated constantly. The development of xPON
