Unified Optical Architecture to Support Wavelength and High Bandwidth Ethernet Services (2022)

By Stephen Ruppa, Comcast

This paper demonstrates how the metro optical network, optical transport network (OTN) tails over the access fiber, small optical shelves at customer sites, and dedicated commercial shelves at hub sites can be combined to support multiple types of commercial business. This enables new features like remote management, performance monitoring (PM) data, alarming, and a full end-to-end circuit view including the customer site. In addition to these operational benefits there are other efficiencies seen by using the same hardware and software as the rest of the core network.
