Abstract

When compared to first generation and single-hop optical networks, multi-hop and multi­rate (M & M) network architectures have the advantage of significantly reducing network design cost under a variety of wavelength-to-terminal cost ratios. This report investigates how fiber chromatic dispersion and self-phase modulation may affect such cost reduction in M & M WDM rings.
