What is wdm optical network?
A WDM optical network is a wavelength density network on fiber
optics. The WDM equipment makes it possible to connect several
different information channels/signals inn to one fiber, Witch
makes it possible to transport enormous amounts of information on
tiny little optical fiber. It`s mostly used on long length between
connection points, and not directly to buildings and homes.
So theoretically if you want to send me 100GB of information,
and you want to send it to me in less then 5 seconds, between us we
have one fiber and each our WDM equipment. If our internet provider
offers this to be a posebility, they would have to give us 10
channels of 2GB each.
Ideally this would work, if you don`t count the loss in the
fiber or units.
