Abstract

The asymmetrical architecture of OXADM consists of 3 parts; selective port, add/drop operation, and path routing. Selective port permits only the interest wavelength pass through and acts as a filter. While add and drop function can be implemented in second part of OXADM architecture. The signals can then be re-routed to any port of output or/and perform an accumulation function which multiplex all signals onto one path and then exit to any interest output port. This will be done by the third part. Ideal situation is a situation where all the devices that form the optical device were considered to have zero loss. However, this loss is replaced in the BER measurement with the use of optical attenuator is set at 25 dB. The value of 25 dB will represent the total dissipation in the OXADM device. The purpose of this study was to obtain the maximum allowed loss for the device OXADM and input power required to maintain the satisfactory performance of the BER (BER <10-9) in the specific loss value. In zero loss condition, the only contributor to the dissipation is the nonlinear effect of power penalty. This paper also measured the power penalty value for three operation of OXADM such as pass through, dropping and adding signal.
