The optical fiber technology based on the dense wavelength division multiplexing is capable of concurrently transmitting multiple streams of information utilizing a single optical fiber. So this paper details the conception of the networking that is based on the optical transport and multiplexing obtained by the dense wavelength division to enhance the performance of the network. The detail explanation in the paper includes the perception for the optical networking such as the components of the dense wavelength division multiplexing, the components, configuration and the designing of the network along with the routing and the conversion of the wavelength. The rapid growth and the usage of the transport network that overlays on the concept of the dense wavelength division multiplexing enables the proposed system to pave way for meager cost for the deployment by modifying the high scaling traffic entailments. The DWDM is further structured with the point to point and a linear topology system utilizing the optical-system to examine the BER under return to zero (RZ) and non-return to zero (NRZ). The forward error correction is utilized to heighten the scalability of the system in the case of the real time implementation. The validation of the system and the results acquired based on the simulation and the comparison from the linear and the point to point topology show that the proffered method ensures the network to cover maximum area with the heightened bandwidth. More over the results acquired evince the performance of the network on the grounds of latency, throughput, availability, redundancy and security.
