Breaking the Bandwidth Bottleneck

May 18, 2009 1:19 pm | Product Releases | Comments

In carrier networks, the fiber plant uses Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology to combine more than 80 channels to transport the Internet traffic. Today, these DWDM channels are dominated by 10Gb/s line rate and channels are separated by a 50GHz spacing. With limited fiber, these 10G channels are the constraints at the critical fiber route now.
