Wavelength Management - A new eBook from xchange and Ciena.
As today's bandwidth demands accelerate, wavelength management, provisioning and performance monitoring is becoming even more vital. In this eBook sponsored by Ciena Corp., find out how improved WDM systems answer the call for increased capacity, OTN works as a platform for converged services, subwave-grooming techniques pack wavelengths with as much traffic as possible, and ROADMs offer flexible provisioning of wavelengths.

Pump Up the Volume
IPTV, SAN, gigabit Ethernet and other high-bandwidth services are pushing the limits of today's networks. Carriers are meeting the accelerating need for capacity with WDM from the core to the edge.
Wrap It Up
An ITU standard since 1998, OTN is not new, but it is getting new attention from carriers looking for a platform for converged services. OTN, short for optical transport network, defines the management of next-generation optical networks, specifically, management of services on waves.
WDM systems are in their third and fourth generations and now include significant management improvements from both provisioning and performance-monitoring perspectives.
One for the ROADM
As networks must carry and switch high-bandwidth services like video, ROADM-enabled WDM systems are becoming more common in the core as a way to dynamically configure wavelengths.
Packing the Pipe
Rather than dedicate a wavelength to a single service, subwave-grooming techniques now enable carriers to pack wavelengths with as much traffic as possible for more efficient utilization.
