In this work, a new subscriber access network architecture has been proposed. It uses optical add-drop multiplexer (OADM) and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). In order to alleviate the limitation on supportable number of users use of OAs has been investigated. It is found that with all the degradations in OAs, the number of users for a typical network is limited to 384.
