Preparing Access and Metro Networks

Content aims to show future Access and Metro Aggregation networks architectures to cost effectively expand as bandwidth demands grow.

Going from 10G grey networks on dark fibre to 100G coloured WDM interfaces.

IPoDWDM: A Strong Trend – What is it About?

IP over DWDM is a networking approach, that integrates IP and optical transport technologies.

Basically, it’s a technology using DWDM pluggable transceivers embedded in a router, connecting directly into a DWDM system – eliminating the need for transponders, thus optimizing data transfer over optical networks.

This improves scalability, efficiency, and is leading to less complex networks, lower latency and lower cost.
