How Optical Wavelength/DWDM: GeoMax Works

GeoMax® uses DWDM technology that enables two or more optical signals with different wavelengths to be simultaneously transmitted in the same direction over one strand of fiber. Separating the wavelength at the distant ends dramatically increases the capacity of an optical fiber. The technology allows CenturyLink to transport high-bandwidth native optical interfaces supporting mainframes, data center connectivity, next generation SONET and fiber-saver applications. In addition to capacity boost, DWDM offers complete transparency, allowing support of multiple customer protocols and applications on a single platform.
