    By cascading multiple microring resonators an ultra-compact transceiver is proposed in the framework of the European IST project NAIS. Microring resonators have been shown to perform desirable functions like filtering, multiplexing and switching of optical signals. This together with their compact size and the possibility to use wellknown fabrication technologies, make it possible to design a low-cost, multi-wavelength transceiver for the multi-gigabit optical access network. Simulations based on experimentally obtained parameters show that it is possible to cascade large numbers of resonators without significant loss in signal power.
