Fiber optic cable backbone for optical multiplexing using WDM, DWDM, ROADM, CWDM & TWDM: Lightwave

TRANSPORT

The growing bandwidth demand on cable MSO backbones from triple- and quadruple-play broadband service provision has led to increasing use of WDM, DWDM, ROADM, and other fiber-optic systems. MSOs must evolve these networks for efficient transport of Ethernet and IP packets as well.
