A SURVEY ON WAVELENGTH DIVISION MULTIPLEXING (WDM) NETWORKS

Abstract
Communication networks have emerged as a source of empowerment in today’s society. At the global level, the Internet is becoming the backbone of the modern economy. The new generations in developed countries cannot even conceive of a world without broadband access to the Internet. The inability of the current Internet infrastructure to cope with the wide variety and ever growing number of users, emerging networked applications, usage patterns and business models is increasingly being recognized worldwide. The dynamic growth of Internet traffic and its bursty nature requires high transmission rate. With the advances and the progress in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology, the amount of raw bandwidth available in fiber links has increased to high magnitude. This paper presents a survey on WDM networks from its development to the current status. Also an analysis on buffer size in optical networks for real time traffic was performed.
