Optical Channel Monitoring in a WDM system implies measurement of wavelength, power, and optical signal-to-noise ratio of all channels. This information can be used for control of network elements, network maintenance, and performance monitoring. I shall discuss a variety of devices applicable to optical monitoring, and useful in the control, maintenance, and provisioning of lightwave systems.
