Abstract

The authors demonstrate the performance of a dynamic and reconfigurable metro-size wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) ring employing eight cascaded linear optical amplifiers. The ring has eight uncorrelated WDM channels, modulated at 10 Gb.s each. Measured Q-factor of all channels is between 17.6 and 18.7 dB, corresponding to a bit-error of less than 2 x 10 (-14). In an add/drop experiment, dynamic switching of channels does not affect transmission quality of the through channels.
