The Internet data traffic constant growth caused by the popularization of cloud services, mobile and social networks is requiring changes at the underlying networks in order to enable scalability whereas supporting a highly dynamic connectivity. Cost-effective and energy efficient solutions for flexible network subsystems are also required in order to provide future sustainable networks. In this paper, we present the design of a scalable cost-effective CWDM ROADM that can easily be upgraded to work with C/DWDM channel enabling future Metro-Access Networks convergence.
