Dense wavelength division mUltiplexing (DWDM) is currently being deployed in a bid to meet the increasing demand for transport capacity. At present the proposed ITU standard channel spacing is 100 GHz but proposals for future systems envisage increasing capacity by reducing this channel spacing further to 50 GHz and even 25 GHz [1].
