Switching solutions for WDM-SDM optical networks

  title={Switching solutions for WDM-SDM optical networks},
  author={Dan M. Marom and Miri Blau},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
Over the last few decades, network traffic has consistently grown at an exponential rate and was efficiently satisfied using WDM and more efficient coding schemes requiring coherent detection. There is no indication that the network traffic growth trend will cease anytime soon, and we are nearing the day when the capacity of the ubiquitous single-mode fiber will be fully exploited. Space-domain multiplexing (SDM) for high-capacity transmission is the promising solution with the scaling… CONTINUE READING
