How Much Do You Know about Multiplexing Technology in Optical Transmission Network?

In optical transmission network, multiplexing technology is considered as an effective means to expand the transmission capacity of existing optical fiber networks. It can increase the transmission capacity of optic fiber in the most cost saving way, so as to quickly meet the increasing demand for high bandwidth. Now, some multiplexing technologies have been widely used and mature in optical…

Do You Know These Advantages of CWDM?

With the development of data communication and telecommunication technology, the intention of MAN(Metropolitan Area Network)is no longer relative to the wide area network. Due to the high bandwidth and data transmission transparency of DWDM(Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) tech, people naturally hope to introduce DWDM as the platform of MAN. However, in the MAN, an optical amplifier is not needed on…
