CWDM or DWDM in metro networks: Which platform makes economic sense?
By Michael Schneider, ECI Telecom--Today, fiber exhaust is still a common problem in many metro networks.

WDM technology was developed to get more capacity from the existing fiber-optic cable plant, by using channels (wavelengths) to carry multiple signals on a single fiber.
