New technologies such as Ultra Long Haul transmission and Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexers (R-OADMs) seem set to transform the economics of optical core network architectures as they become commercially available. Together, they allow an important first step towards optic al transparency by allowing transit traffic to pass without regeneration along chains of nodes. This paper looks in detail at how cost savings are achieved through this process, and introduces some of the key network, traffic, and cost parameters influencing the benefits.
