blocker based OADM (BOADM)

BOADM, Blocker Based OADMs, are reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (OADM) that use Wavelength Blockers

(WB) and can be configured remotely. Wavelength blockers can block entire frequency bands

or multiple wavelengths and attenuate the level of light signals. Wavelength blockers use switches in microsystem technology

or in LCoS technology.
