Abstract

See full text

The invention comprises a method and apparatus for implementing a relatively low cost add/drop multiplexer (OADM) wherein pre-demux and post-mux dispersion compensation is employed in a manner that substantially avoids imparting additional dispersion compensation to pass-through wavelength channels in a WDM system.
