For all-optical WDM networks, we study the impact of the number of transceivers and their tunabilities on network performance. Results have been obtained through simulations for networks with different topologies. We find that a network with a limited number of transceivers in each node and limited transceiver tunability can still perform close to one equipped with a full number of fully tunable transceivers.
