Basics of DWDM Concepts

DWDM System Helps Expand the 10GbE Network

Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network is regarded as a feasible solution to achieve long-distance fiber expansion. DWDM system, with the channel density of 96, has much narrower channel spacing than CWDM system, which allows extremely high utilization of a single fiber strand to pass up to many clients. 10G DWDM SFP+ modules can support a link length of up…

250um Loose-tube vs. 900um Tight Buffered Fiber

Choosing the right fiber-optic cable has become more challenging than ever. Factors like the advent of new cable designs, suppliers, changes in fiber specifications, and the many claims of cable performance can confuse even the most seasoned network designers. However, the selection of the basic cable design is mostly dependent on the application and installation environment. There are two common…

The basics of Ethernet

In today’s telecom field, Ethernet has been utilized at various levels of the control hierarchy. Since the standardization in 1980, Ethernet has become the most widely installed local area network (LAN) technology either in the office or the enterprise network for the high-end controller. We talk about Ethernet every day, however, people without decades of experience can hardly say they…

Active Optical Network

Deciding Between Passive Optical Networks and Active Optical Networks

The FTTH solution is regarded as the best option with respect to transmission quality and bandwidth. The deployment of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) access networks has gone through a long way before subscribers use fiber cables instead of copper lines to achieve broadband Internet access. FTTH is a form of fiber-optic communication delivery with fiber extending from the central…
