Open ROADM (Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer) refers to an open architecture framework for designing and implementing optical transport networks in the telecommunications industry. The Open ROADM initiative aims to standardize and open up the interfaces and functionalities of optical networking equipment, allowing for interoperability between different vendors’ products. This openness and standardization promote flexibility, innovation, and cost-effectiveness in the development and deployment of optical communication solutions.


Intelligent Filtering-Penalty Monitoring and Mitigation for Cascaded WSSs using Ensemble Learning Algorithm

An ensemble learning algorithm is applied to enhance filtering tolerance of cascaded WSSs in open ROADM environment to demonstrate ~0.8dB Q-factor improvement over MLSE after transmitting over 3200km with 16 ROADMs.
