HOW WDM HELPS YOU EXPAND AND OPTIMIZE YOUR NETWORK CAPACITY
We increase bandwidth by allowing data streams at different frequencies to be sent over a single optical fiber network
Wavelength Division Multiplexing
This is WDM
Organizations thrive on communication — a flow of data that runs between divisions and people powering progress. Fiber optic cables are roads that carry information from office to office, site to site, country to country. Wavelength Division Multiplexing, WDM, increases bandwidth by allowing different data streams to be sent over a single optical fiber network, optimizing the usage of the fiber. Our vision is to make this happen in the simplest and most cost-effective way possible
Many organizations have yet to discover the benefits of WDM networking and how it can be used to maximize network investments. Here we have collected all you need to know about WDM to get the most out of your fiber network: articles, guides, videos and use cases.

The basics of Wavelength Division Multiplexing, WDM
Wavelength division multiplexing, WDM, has long been the technology of choice for transporting large amounts of data between sites and optimize optical network performance.
CWDM vs DWDM
The difference between CWDM and DWDM
Choosing between CWDM or DWDM? Which of the two key WDM technologies is best suited to a given environment depends on the network and user requirements.
how it's done
Four ways to transport data over an optical network
A closer look at the most common ways of transporting data over a fiber network is by using single channel connectivity, embedded WDM solutions or active WDM platforms.
“We replaced an entire legacy system for a large governmental organization. The cost for the complete Smartoptics solutions was the same as the yearly maintenance contract from their previous supplier. The new solution is better, smarter and faster!”
