Capacity Expansion and Flexibility—DWDM Network

DWDM increases the bandwidth of an optical fiber by multiplexing several wavelengths onto it. Even though it costs more than CWDM, it is currently the most popular WDM technology because it offers the most capacity. This article provides an overview of DWDM networks and … Continue reading

Wavelength Division Multiplexing Technical Overview

The Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system uses a Multiplexer (MUX) at the transmitter to put multiple optical signals on the fiber along with a DeMultiplexer (DeMUX) at the receiver to split them from the fiber. The signals use different wavelengths. … Continue reading
