Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) - Technologies and Tools for Successful Deployment

Mars 26, 2019

Whether its residential or enterprise, the demand for bandwidth is driving MSOs to invest in their fiber networks. One of the easiest and most cost-effective methods is through the use of wave division multiplexing (WDM). WDM essentially provides a way to add multiple virtual fiber lanes to an existing fiber thus increasing the amount of data that can be transmitted over it.

The initial roll outs were Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) which allowed operators to transmit up to 18 channels over multiple bands on a single fiber. Most recently, Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) has emerged as the technology of choice providing up to 96 channels in the C-band over a single fiber. While WDM technology provides a scalable, cost-effective

The VIAVI team conducted two multi-part series of informative webinars created to support your continued transition to a fiber-rich network. You can now catch up on these informative webinar series created by the fiber experts at VIAVI via on-demand recordings. The sessions cover individual topics and do not need to be watched chronologically.  Click here for a complete list of webinars in both series.
