How to Deploy 10G, 40G, 100G in the Same Network

In 2010, 10G SFP+ became the primary equipment interface in data center applications. However, jump to 2017, as demand for greater bandwidth shows no signs of slowing, 40G and 100G transceiver shipments saw a whopping increase. While shipments of 40G and 100G modules are on…

Can the Hybrid CWDM-DWDM System Work for Higher Capacity?

When facing the capacity-hungry issue, have you ever hesitated over which WDM system should be choose? As the CWDM system is a more economical solution for limited expanding capacity while the expensive DWDM solution enables much higher capacity, which one should be chose is really…

Dual-Fiber or Single-Fiber CWDM Mux Demux for Higher Capacity Need

What would you do if your network capacity can not meet your requirement? Will you put more fibers or update your system? In fact, these two methods are not very recommendable. Why? As your fiber cabling infrastructure is limited for adding fibers and high cost…

Why Not Use Raman Amplifier to Extend the CWDM Network Reach?

In comparison with the long-haul DWDM network that uses the thermo-electric coolers to stabilize the laser emissions essential, the CWDM network is a more economical solution that features wider wavelength spacing, allowing the wavelength fluctuation of uncooled directly modulated laser diodes (DMLs). But on the…

Single Fiber Solutions for CWDM and DWDM Networks

It is well known that there are two transmission ways for fiber optical network, single fiber transmission and dual fiber transmission. From the name, it is easy to learn that the fiber amount is the main difference of these two transmission ways. For the dual…

How to Deploy a Single-Fiber CWDM Network?

Generally, CWDM network designed for expanding the network capacity can be basically divided into two types, dual-fiber and single-fiber CWDM network, according to the optical fiber transmission line. For the dual-fiber CWDM network, its working principle is easy to acquire, which uses the same wavelength…
