This presentation reviews the advancements in converged WDM network architectures, system, standards, and the enabling photonics technology.? The scalable, cost-effective network evolution is very important for supporting the bandwidth demands of broadband and business applications, currently growing at more than 50 % CAGR, and expected by 2012 to exceed globally 40 Exabytes per month.? This network requirements have increasingly motivated a fundamental evolution towards DWDM, and packets (datagrams), leading to the most significant evolution of transport networks in recent history.? The emerging converged “open” intelligent DWDM layer improves significantly the network capital and operational cost.
We review the interplay among the network architectures, and the transmission system and enabling photonics technology innovations, most notably including reconfigurable wavelength optical-add-drop and switching, and recent advancements in DWDM transmission leveraging new modulation formats, and electronic processing, which have collectively enabled fiber transmission digital systems to cost-effectively scale to Tb/s and thousands of km.? Future network evolution and related research topics are also being considered.
