The design of an energy-efficient wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transponder is proposed and effectiveness of the proposed WDM transponder is experimentally studied. The proposed WDM transponder interworking with the link-aggregation technique possessed by a layer 2 switch can achieve power saving depending on traffic volume variations by utilizing an adaptive interface control. Monitoring methods for the link connectivity of a sleep link are also discussed.
