This paper reports on the general architecture for a sliceable bandwidth variable transponder as discussed within the IDEALIST European project. Support for super-channels (optical connections with several adjacent sub-carriers) and slice-ability (super-channels generated together but independently routed in the network towards different destinations) is guaranteed. For illustrative purpose some driving ideas on a possible modular implementation are shown.
