Paper Abstract

Optical fiber cable are worldwide installed, e.g. about 43 million kilometers in 1997, an annual growth rate of about 20% is expected. This infrastructure is an excellent basis to convert optical networks based on point-to point systems into managed photonic networks in which new additional photonic equipment is used. Deutsche Telekom started in 1997 some tests with new wavelength division multiplex (WDM) technology in their network in which standard single mode fiber is very dominant. We report on some of these tests and also on first WDM-links in the network carrying real traffic.
