 Wavelength-division multiplexing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In fibre optic telecommunications, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) is a technology which multiplexes multiple optical carrier signals on a single optical fibre by using different wavelengths (colours) of laser light to carry different signals.
WDM wavelengths are positioned in a grid having exactly 100 GHz (about 0.8nm) spacing in optical frequency, with a reference frequency fixed at 193.10 THz (1552.52nm).
An interesting and relatively recent development relating Coarse WDM is the creation of Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers utilizing standardized CWDM wavelengths.

 Wavelength Division Multiplexing
The cross-connect is composed of wavelength demultiplexers for the input stage, wavelength multiplexers for the output stage, and fibers interconnecting the two stages.
A disadvantage of a single-hop WDM network is that the network and all its components must accommodate N wavelengths, which may be difficult (or impossible) to achieve in a large network.
An alternative to requiring N wavelengths to accommodate N nodes is to have a multihop network, in which two nodes can communicate with each other by sending through a third node, with many such intermediate hops possible.

 WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) (Linktionary term)
WDM is an FDM (frequency division multiplexing) technique for fiber-optic cable in which multiple optical signal channels are carried across a single strand of fiber at different wavelengths of light.
The frequency increases as the wavelength is shortened.
Best of all, EDFAs can simultaneously boost the signals of multiple wavelengths in the same cable.

 Dense Wavelength-division Multiplexing
Recently, multiplexers have gained versatility, moving beyond the “wideband” wavelengths and into densely packed wavelengths that can be integrated into a multiple high frequency, 192 to 200 THz, transmission system.
This increase means that the incoming optical signals are assigned to specific wavelengths within a designated frequency band, then multiplexed onto one fiber.
he recent explosion of DWDM technology forced the fiber optic manufacturers to develop DWDM multiplexers and demultiplexers that can handle closely spaced optical wavelengths.

 Wavelength-Division-Multiplexing Optical Fiber Systems
With wavelength division multiplexing several optical information signals can be transferred in a single optical fiber.
Each of different wavelength laser is operating at the slower Gbps speed but the aggregate system is transmitting at n times the individual laser speed which n is the number of channels in WDM structure.
Wavelength tuning is accomplihed by variying the air gap between the mirrors.

 Cable University Fiber Tech: Dense Wavelenght Division Multiplexing
WDM only made sense if the multiplexed wavelengths were in the region of the fiber amplifiers operating range of 1520 to 1560 nm.
The technical requirement is only that the lasers be of very specific wavelengths and the wavelengths are very stable, and the DWDM demultiplexers capable of distinguishing each wavelength without crosstalk.
They can amplify numerous wavelengths of light simultaneously, as long as all are in the wavelength range of the FO amplifier.

The wide spacing accommodates the uncooled laser wavelength drifts that occurs as the ambient temperature varies.
With a capacity greater than WDM and smaller than DWDM, CWDM allows a modest number of channels, typically eight or less, to be stacked in the 1550 nm region of the fiber called the C-Band.

 Wavelength Division Multiplexing
It is possible to send messages anywhere in the network, include needed codes and instructions for correcting, decrypting, and reading them, and allow each terminal to tune into its own messages on its own wavelength.
Because WDM allows the large bandwidth of the optical fiber to be more fully utilized, optical fiber becomes more than a simple 1:1 replacement for copper wires (one channel per fiber).
The channels are then optically multiplexed such that multiple channels travel down the fiber simultaneously and with negligible interference.

 Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (WDM)
Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM)_wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) is an approach that can exploit the huge opto-electronic bandwidth mismatch by requiring that each end-user's equipment operate only at electronic rate, but multiple WDM channels from different end-users may be multiplexed on the same fiber.
In this regard, note that, normally, a lightpath operates on the same wavelength across all fiber links that it traverses, in which case the lightpath is said to satisfy the ^wavelength-continuity constraint.
Lightpaths that cannot be set up due to constraints on routes and wavelengths are said to be blocked, so the corresponding network optimization problem is to minimize this blocking probability.

Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) is a technology that puts data from different sources together on an optical fiber, with each signal carried at the same time on its own separate light wavelength.

The channels are spaced typically 1 nm apart in wavelength (120 GHz apart in frequency) in the 1.5 micron passband of the fiber.
Typical time-division multiplexed systems are limited in their exploitation of this bandwidth for communication by electronic speeds, which currently allow transmission at bit trates of up to a few Gb/s total.
