    With today's explosion of on-line services and the anticipated emergence of broadband services, traffic demand will grow quickly, requiring a huge increase in transmission capacity. Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) is receiving considerable attention from network operators as an efficient and cost-effective solution to provide high-capacity point-to-point transmission on their already instal...

    The two choices for broadband access that are currently being most heavily debated in the United States are loosely termed "hybrid fiber coax" (HFC) and "switched digital video" (SDV). The thrust of this paper is to explain why these two alternatives overshadow all others and to highlight decision factors facing network providers in choosing between them. The HFC/SDV terminology has evolved from i... View full abstract»

    This study concludes that nonlinearities set the ultimate limits on system capacity; and that dispersion is the key parameter for managing nonlinearities. Very-high capacities have been demonstrated by using nonlinearities of the fibre network architecture. View full abstract»
