One FBG-MZI-based component and one mediator are proposed in this paper. The proposed OADM building module consists of one FBG-based MZI module and one reconfigurable module, and it can add/drop or pass-by the specified wavelength. OADM created by concatenating the proposed modules, owns wavelength modularity, and can add-drop and pass-by any specified wavelengths. The mediator is one simplified 4 x 4 optical switch matrix. It can be used to interconnect multiple OADM modules to build one OXC with multiple ports.
