  • Patent number: 10805698
    Abstract: In the case of a OXC device having a route & select-type configuration of the conventional technique, when the port number is 20, then the entire device requires 120 WSSs having a 1×9 configuration. In the case of a route & select-type OXC device having ports more than 20 ports, a large amount of expensive WSSs is required. Thus, such a device is impractical from the viewpoint of cost. Thus, the expansion depending on an increase of traffic at nodes was impossible, flexible scalability could not be provided, and a reasonable network operation from the viewpoint of economy was difficult. According to the OXC device of this disclosure, regardless of the input port number and the output port number of the device, WSSs having a smaller scale than the conventional technique are used and the WSSs are internally-connected from a viewpoint different from that of the conventional technique, thus providing the device having a significantly-reduced cost.
