High-Speed 100 Gbps/Channel DWDM System Design and Simulation

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 243)


A high-speed 100 Gbps/channel dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) system for a distance of 450 km is proposed here. The input power applied is 10 dBm, with adjacent channel spacing of 400 GHz. Simple return-to-zero (RZ) data format is used for avoiding the system complexity. The system is designed and simulated using OptiSystem 9. The proposed system will be very much useful for future optical networks and also for long-haul optical communication applications.
