Abstract
We evaluate switch scale for several single-layer and hierarchical optical cross-connects. With the introduction of practical waveband add/drop ratio bound that can be derived through recently developed network design algorithms, switch scale can be significantly reduced. We identify the most cost-effective architectures by applying practical parameter values that are determined through our studies.
