Optical frequency division multiplexing (optical FDM) technology, which allows the use of an extremely broad lightwave bandwidth (10-200 THz and over) and can realize transport systems that could replace the current digital (time division multiplexing based) transport networks, is described. The future outlook for communication networks based on optical FDM technology is assessed. Based on the technical results obtained from a 100-channel optical FDM experiment, of an optical FDM channel concept is proposed and a viable architecture for optical FDM-channel-based networks is developed
