Paper Abstract

Optical communications infrastructure is undergoing an intense development in his country now. A number of international investors and domestic operators are building from the beginning, modernizing or developing proprietary network or leasing wide area systems on a large scale. The aggregate level of these processes is of the order of bil $. Despite of this the network is not homogeneous, has not satisfactory bandwidth, lacks the QoS, has inadequate international connections, and (according to prevailing opinions) the prices are too high for corporate as well as private users. The intense development of the optical infrastructure is governed by two dominant tendencies: burying new large, fat, optical pipes--cables containing even as much fibers as 500 (for C, L and XL optical bands) and investments in DWDM for main traffic directions (previously working in 1300 nm band).
