Abstract
WDM can dramatically increase the capacity in point-to-point transmission and can increase the capacity and routing functionality in local- and wide-area networks. However, there are many systems-level limitations on the bandwidth, number of wavelengths, WDM-device characteristics, and inter-user distance. Systems issues include crosstalk, wavelength chirp, EDFA bandwidth, and nonlinearities. We briefly describe some of these component-related issues and the constraints which they place on WDM systems.
