DWDM, ROADM, Flex Spectrum and CDC Briefing

2 hours
Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) and Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) are extensively utilized technologies to help operators expand their existing fiber infrastructure. It allows for massive scale of just a pair of fiber to create up to 96 channels and beyond of DWDM wavelengths between and through locations. Furthermore, it has the ability to leverage cutting edge Flex Spectrum wavelengths and contentionless, directionless and colorless (CDC) technologies which provide the operator the scale, flexibility and capacity needed far into the future.


In this briefing, WWT subject matter experts will discuss with you the capabilities and benefits of adopting a DWDM, ROADM, Flex Spectrum and CDC architecture. We will work with your key stakeholders to understand and help determine your specific needs, as well as a strategy to deploy and transition to a next generation optical solution.
