Abstract

Both spatial-division multiplexing (SDM) and band-division multiplexing (BDM) emerge as possible solutions to increase the optical network capacity to support the traffic demand which has been rising over time. In this work, two different ROADM (Re-configurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexer) switching techniques, namely SDM-InS (Independent switching) and SDM-CCC (Core Continue Constant) are investigated and the resulting network capacity is compared with the BDM approach. In the BDM case, both L- and S-bands have been used in addition to C-band to increase the network capacity. The launch power is optimized to control the QoT (Quality of Transmission) summarized by the generalized SNR (GSNR) per channel. Due to: stimulated Raman scattering, frequency variation of loss, frequency variation of dispersion coefficient and noise figures, an optimum power tilt and offset are calculated for each band. We show that the total network capacity increased by ∼2× and ∼3×, when using the L-band and L+S-bands in addition to the C-band, respectively, in both a reference German and a reference US network. Additionally, it was also shown that using additional bands, the increase in network capacity is close to the result of using additional optical fibers in the SDM case.
