Fiber optic enterprise network using wdm, dwdm, infiniband, cwdm & roadm technology: Lightwave

DWDM & 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.
