DWDM AND ROADM

DWDM and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) systems are the linchpins of next generation networks. Today’s DWDM systems feature high channel count and longer reach. Meanwhile, colorless, directionless, contentionless, and gridless ROADM features are either available now or on the drawing board.

Wed Apr 02 15:04:00 CDT 2014
Fiber optics has traditionally been viewed as a more secure way to transmit information than other alternatives. Copper wire can be tapped or monitored for electromagnetic emissions, and wireless can be intercepted rather easily. So it was somewhat surprising when recent revelations in the press revealed wide-scale tapping of fiber-optic trunk lines between data centers. It turns out tapping fiber is muc...
