Dr. Joseph C. Palais 9.6 3 WDM: Simultaneous transmission of several independent optical carriers along a single fiber. DWDM: Dense wavelength-division multiplexing has a large number of optical carriers. Fiber Multiplexer Demultiplexer Input Output λ 1 λ 4 λ 3 λ 2 λ 1 λ 4 λ 3 λ 2 λ 1 , λ 2 , λ 3 , λ 4

Dr. Joseph C. Palais 9.6 4 Advantages of WDM 1. The total channel capacity is increased using WDM by the number of carriers. 2. Bi-directional operation is possible. 3. Fiber systems installed at an earlier time can be upgraded to a higher capacity using WDM. 4. A WDM system can transmit voice, video and data on separate wavelengths.

Dr. Joseph C. Palais 9.6 8 Example: If the source wavelengths are 1530, 1534, 1538 nm and the source linewidths are ∆λ < 2 nm Then, the insertion is (from the previous plot): L IL = 2 dB and the crosstalk is L CT >> 30 dB
