Research paper : Demonstration of optical communication network for ultra high-definition image transmission (J. Kurumida et al.)−116−Synthesiology - English edition Vol.4 No.2 (2011) Term 3.Term 4.Term 5.Term 6.Term 7.Term 8.Term 9.Transponder: optical transmitting/receiving equipment that communicates at an arbitrary wavelength, by storing the client signal and converting it into frame format (such as OTN) appropriate for the backbone transmission networks.Transponder aggregator: a device that resolves the ROADM’s issue of the limitation of wavelength and path in the optical route setting, and provides the degree of freedom in reconfiguring the optical route between the transmission line and the optical transmitting/receiving device (transponder). It is composed of the waveguide with wavelength selectivity and an optical matrix switch, and it enables the optical route setting where the arbitrary transponder connects to an arbitrary optical fiber transmission route at an arbitrary wavelength.C-band, L-band: the wavelength range used in optical communication. Conventional (C) band has the wavelength range of 1530-1565 nm, while long (L) band has the range 1565-1625 nm.Erbium-doped optical fiber amplifier: a device that amplifies the optical signal directly in the fiber without the electrical signal conversion, utilizing the principle where the optical signal of a certain range is amplified when the excitation light of a certain wavelength is applied to a fiber doped with rare earth element erbium.Topology: a term that indicates the position and connection. In general, it indicates the connection format of the computer network. Star-type and ring-type network topology are most commonly used.Open systems interconnection (OSI): the standardization and organization where the communication protocol is broken down into the seven-layer structure. It is known as the OSI reference model.Media converter: a device that connects the different transmission media and converts the signals mutually. The most common one is the device that converts the LAN cable (copper wire) to optical fiber.ReferencesMinistry of Internal Affairs and Communications, 2010 White Paper on Information and Communications in Japan, (White paper), (2010).S.
