Development of new fibers for high capacity systems and networks

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Internet and data traffic is fueling an explosion in the demand for information capacity over the backbone optical transmission network. Data traffic that 10 years ago was approximately 5% of total bandwidth now is nearly equal to voice traffic and in 10 years time will grow to be 95%. To meet this capacity demand the commercialization of erbium-doped fiber amplifiers was the key technology for massive deployment of wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM).
