    Open ROADM: Vision, Progress and Plan

    Open ROADM is a multi-source-agreement among nearly 30 service providers and suppliers with the goal of defining interoperability specifications, both optical and YANG data models, for ROADM-based systems.  This talk will focus on why Open ROADM is critical to AT&T, current progress on active deployment in AT&T’s metros, and near-term plans.  I will also comment on recent advancements of the Open ROADM MSA and AT&T’s vision for opening up our long-haul network.
