Reduction of installation and operational costs are currently the driving force behind the implementation of optical networks. 2D MEMS technology plays an important role in the development of these network systems with several applications, including optical cross-connects, protection switching, optical add-drop multiplexing and wavelength switching. The optical design and packaging technology that has been developed for 2D MEMS has resulted in a flexible platform that can be used to manufacture highly integrated fiber optic devices.
