Optical Networking Case Study: How Cisco IT Used CWDM to Interconnect Japanese Data Center Sites
Dark fiber and CWDM solution decreases costs and increases network availability.
In 2003 when Cisco Japan IT wanted to build a new data center in Tokyo for its two large business offices, the team needed a cost-effective way to interconnect the sites. Cisco Japan IT chose the combination of inexpensive dark fiber with coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM) GBICs for a low-cost, high-flexibility solution.
