Coarse Cwdm systems are positioned as offering less expensive transport than dense Dwdm technology and sufficient capacity for many edge network and enterprise network applications. Cwdm systems deliver enough bandwidth for multiple metro applications Dwdm systems deliver more bandwidth than Cdwm but are more expensive than Cwdm. Dwdm systems cost $32,000 per port per node. Cwdm systems cost 30 to 40 percent lower than Dwdm at $12,000 per port per node.

Metro applications do not require the capacity that Dwdm systems do. They require more space and power than Cwdm. Cwdm systems are available with relatively small numbers of channels and low cost. Space and price are key differentiators. 80-watt power is lower than a light bulb.

Cwdm growth opportunities relate to implementing storage solutions, backup solutions, and Cwdm metro transport. Cwdm transport solutions platforms are expanding functionality to include access capability. In this manner access and transport markets are merging for the metro markets.

With the growth of the Internet, demand for high bandwidth continues to increase. The ability to increase transport capacity is needed universally. High bandwidth READ MORE >
