Abstract
Wavelength Cross-Connects (WXCs) are a class of optical switches designed to dynamically route the transport of wavelengths between fibers in DWDM systems. More generic optical cross-connects (OXCs), also called optical core switches (OCS), are designed to switch optical channels without regard to wavelength. WXCs are typically deployed to add/drop wavelengths from a DWDM stream, to route wavelengths in DWDM mesh networks and to provide path protection and restoration in DWDM rings and meshes.
