Term Definition

Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing, or DWDM, is an optical technology used to maximize bandwidth over existing high capacity fiber-optic carrier network backbones. DWDM increases bandwidth by transmitting and multiplexing, or combining multiple signals simultaneously at different wavelengths within the same fiber circuit. The result is that a single fiber circuit is leveraged and maximized into multiple virtual fiber connections. DWDM is protocol and bit-rate agnostic, or independent. DWDM networks can transmit data in IP, ATM, SONET/SDH, and Ethernet, and handle bit-rates from 100 Mbps, or Megabits up to 2.5 Gbps, or Gigabits per second.
