What is this white paper about?
Increasing demands of Internet, data, mobile content, high definition video, storage and digital television pave the way for advancements in optical transport networks. The 100G DWDM solution matured rapidly with leading technologies of direct modulation for metro distances, and coherent technology for long haul applications.
Coherent technology enables carriers and service providers to easily expand their existing 10G and 40G networks and support 100G applications to achieve higher throughput, better spectral efficiency and cover longer distances without changing their existing fiber infrastructure.
100G DWDM provides a cost-effective solution to accommodate current and future needs of bandwidth-demanding data and video applications, to transport 100G data rate capacity over a single wavelength across long distances with high optical performance.
