Wavelength Division Multiplexer (WDM) is a technology in fiber optics communications which multiplexes a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using wavelengths of laser light. This technology allows sending data over the same medium, i.e. it enables bidirectional communications over a single strand of fiber. A multiplexer is used at the transmitter end for multiplexing several signals from different optical fibers on a single optical fiber. Wavelength division multiplexers are the fundamental building blocks for a high capacity optical communications network.
The tremendous rise in internet usage both by commercial and residential users forced the operators to meet the growing demand for bandwidth. To meet this demand optical fibers are deployed and optical fiber network is established in order to yield maximum capacity by the operators. Thus WDM emerged as a new technology which uses less expensive transmitters and there is no need for temperature stabilization. One of the important factors driving this market is the low cost per bit of data transfer. Due to increasing demand for high-speed data transfer, WDMs are anticipated to be widely adopted globally. As they have the capacity to transfer data over multiple terabits per second over thousands of kilometers; network service providers are highly adopting WDMs for fiber optics network. Rising investments on advanced network infrastructure and increase in cloud data center traffic are anticipated to be the drivers for this market. Further, rising IP traffic and bandwidth demands are expected to create numerous opportunities in this market. One of the factors that are expected to hamper the growth of wavelength division multiplexer market is the cost related to dark fiber network in the ground. Dark Fiber is the term used for unused optical fiber network infrastructure laid down during cabling.
Segmentation of WDM market is based on the type of multiplexer, industry verticals, and region. On the basis of the type of multiplexer, the segmentation is Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexer (CWDM) and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexer (DWDM). Coarse WDM refers to the multiplexing of less variety of signals on the single glass fiber. It delivers multiplexing of up to 16 channels on one glass fiber. Whereas, Dense WDM offers to multiplex of a huge variety of carrier signals as compared to coarse WDM; this sort of electronic device generally provides multiplexing of over 40 channels on a single glass fiber. Based on industry verticals, the segmentation is IT & telecom, manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, and others. Further, regional segmentation includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa.
Some of the major players operating in this market are Ciena Corporation, ADTRAN Inc., ADVA Optical Networking SE, Aliathon Technology Ltd., Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei Technologies, Fujitsu Ltd., Infinera Corporation, ZTE, and Cisco Systems, Inc. amongst others.
