What is IP over DWDM (IPoDWDM)?

IP over DWDM (IPoDWDM) is a technology used in telecommunications networks to integrate IP routers and network switches in the OTN (Optical Transport Network). A true IPoDWDM solution is implemented only when the IP Routers and Switches support ITU-T G.709. In this way IP devices can monitor the optical path and implement the transport functionality […]

Macro bending Detection By an OTDR

On a transmission network, one cause of insertion loss on a fiber link is macro bending. This is commonly caused by tight installation or handling. As Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks lead to a significant increase of fiber installation in the last mile, the space constraints become increasingly stringent. This is driving the need for distributions hubs […]
