    We report a reconfigurable four-channel optical add–drop multiplexer for use in access networks. The optical add–drop multiplexer (OADM) is based on vertically coupled thermally tunable $Si_3N_4$ – $SiO_2$ microring resonators (MRs) and has been realized on a footprint of 0.25 mm2. Individual MRs in the OADM can be tuned across the full free-spectral range of 4.18 nm and have a 3-dB bandwidth of 50 GHz.
