Principles of Optical Multiplexing

Course Code: TE102


This course addresses the many technical issues, possible solutions and recent progress in the area of multi-channel WDM systems. Discussions centre on various devices, systems, and network limitations and applications.

Key topics

  • Overview of optical networking and data transmission over fibre
  • Basic optical networking elements: fibre optic cable, optical couplers, transmitters and receivers, optical amplifiers, optical cross-connects and optical add/drop multiplexers
  • Optical transmission performance parameters
  • Advantages of fibre optic systems
  • Dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM)
  • Digital networking evolution
  • Tunable lasers, multiple wavelength laser arrays, tunable optical filters, wavelength division multiplexers, receiver arrays, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM)/space-division multiplexing (SDM) cross-connect
  • Fibre Bragg gratings.

Target audience

Network engineers expected to take part in the deployment or maintenance of core and last mile fibre optic networks.
