Traditionally, dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) has been used to relieve congested fiber networks when the option of deploying additional fiber cable strands is cost-prohibitive. An example of the “fiber relief” strategy is the deployment of point-to-point DWDM within a fiber transmission section to create “virtual” fiber strands in the network. These virtual fiber strands are then deployed as fiber sections for Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) ...
