Types of WDM Transport System



What is WDM In Networking


Multiplexing optical signals of different wavelengths into the same optical fiber for transmission, we call the method or technology wavelength division multiplexing (WDM).

Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is a technology that combines two or more optical carrier signals of different wavelengths at the transmitting end through a multiplexer, namely a type of wdm equipment, and coupling them to the same optical fiber for transmission; at the receiving end, the optical carriers of various wavelengths are separated by the demultiplexer, and then further processed by the optical receiver to restore the original signal. This technology of simultaneously transmitting two or more optical signals of different wavelengths in the same optical fiber is called wavelength division multiplexing.


Classification of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) system

Opening system: Generally, WDM systems have (Optical Transponder Unit) OTU to convert optical signals of non-standard wavelengths of client equipment into optical signals with standard wavelengths that comply with ITU-T G.694.1 or ITU-T G.694.2 recommendations.

Integrated system: Another WDM system does not require OTU. The optical port of the client-side equipment (such as a switch) can be equipped with a standard wavelength division optical module, and the luminous signal of the client-side equipment is directly connected to the multiplexing and demultiplexing unit (MDU) of the WDM system.

Difference between CWDM and DWDM

Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexer (CWDM) is a low-cost WDM transmission technology for the access layer of the metropolitan area network. Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) is to combine a group of optical wavelengths and use a single optical fiber for transmission. However, DWDM laser technology is more expensive than CWDM, as it requires more stable wavelength sources. The increasing cost of the DWDM transmitter is mainly due to the high cost of the laser diodes, and the feedback cooling operation to maintain the wavelength stability. And that's the reason why the price of WDM devices vary.

WDM Transport System Advantages

  • 01
    Arbitrary service access

    Deliver any service, any protocol, any card with speed. Eliminate networking headaches with solutions that are simple to deploy and operate with future-ready architectures.


  • 02
    Smooth upgrade and expansion

    As long as the number of multiplexing optical channels and devices is increased, the transmission capacity of the system can be increased to achieve expansion, and the expansion will not have adverse effects on other multiplexing optical paths. Therefore, the upgrade and expansion of the WDM system are smooth, convenient, and easy, so as to maximize the protection of the initial construction investment.


  • 03
    Transparent transmission of each channel

    The multiplexing channels of the WDM system are independent of each other, so each channel can transparently transmit different service signals, such as voice, data, and image, which will not interfere with each other. It can bring great convenience to users.


  • 04
    Super capacity transmission

    The transmission capacity of the WDM system is very large. Because the multiplexing optical channel rate of WDM system can be 10, 25, 100, 200 Gbit/s, and the number of multiplexing optical channels can be 4, 8, 16, 32, or even more, the transmission capacity of the system can reach as much as 19.2 Gbit/s.

    What is DWDM and how it works?

    Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) is an optical multiplexing technology used to increase bandwidth over existing fiber networks. DWDM works by combining and transmitting multiple signals simultaneously at different wavelengths on the same fiber.

    What is the difference between DWDM and CWDM?

    CWDM has a wider channel spacing than DWDM. CWDM systems can carry 18 channels. DWDM systems, on the other hand, can carry 40, 80, 96 wavelengths by utilizing a much narrower spacing of 0.8/0.4 nm (100 GHz/50 GHz grid).
