Novel five-band 8-skip-0 band filters realized in silica waveguide planar lightwave circuit technology were successfully used to demonstrate versatile wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) optical networking. Forty C-band channels spaced 100 GHz apart grouped in five bands of eight channels each allowed WDM networking without loss of any channel within the available optical bandwidth. We demonstrate simultaneous transport of 10 and 40 Gb/s with rate-appropriate optical add-drop nodes.
