OADM Application Overview



The OADM Add/Drop Multiplexer is available in two configurations, Add/Drop Configuration and Drop & Continue Configuration. The Add/Drop Mux diagrammed above accesses the composite Optical link extracting/inserting a single channel in both the East and West directions. Note that the extracted wavelength ( l #2) is present on the composite optical link on both sides of the Multiplexer as two different circuits. The Drop & Continue diagrammed below extracts/inserts a channel in one direction only. Add/Drop and Drop & Continue configurations used in combination on a link allows reuse of wavelengths and optimizes the CWDM System for your particular needs.
