Author Affiliations +
The evolution of the dynamic optical components marks an important change in the way optical networks will be configured in future. This new class of optical components can be electronically controlled and configured in software thereby enabling service providers to automate service provisioning with out expensive truck rolls. Numerous component and subsystem manufacturers are pursuing the challenge of developing these innovative products with various technologies like MEMS and Liquid Crystal. These new products in due time will enable network evolution to a dynamic architecture, allowing carriers to optimize bandwidth allocation and implement additional revenue generating services.
