Paper Abstract

A laboratory experiment was evaluated on the CWDM/GbE Metro Network System. The system is configuration with the optical fiber Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) devices that are designed for Metropolitan and Access Area Network. CWDM devices can support 8 channels over a single fiber either a uni- directional or bi-directional mode, and can increase fiber capacity from 2 to 16 times transmission capacity. The system performance was evaluated using the network performance analyzer by measuring the characteristics of throughput and latency. The systems test results showed that this CWDM based Gigabits Ethernet have good transmission performance through the distance to 50 Km.
