Modernization of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Route Surabaya-Bangil To Increase Optical Network Capacity

Imelda Uli Vistalina Simanjuntak, Solichah Larasati, Yosy Rahmawati S, Dina Amalia Santika


Along with the increasing demand for data networks, on the Java island network traffic, especially the Surabaya - Bangil link, the operator increases the channel capacity by modernizing DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology in its transmission equipment. At that time, the DWDM technology was DWDM 6800 with a maximum capacity of one port that could only accommodate 10 Gbit/s, while using DWDM 9800, the maximum capacity of one port could accommodate up to 100 Gbit/s. Modernization of DWDM 6800 to DWDM 9800 technology uses the cross-connect method so that it does not require many costs and can be done within a short duration of time so that network performance can be adequately maintained. As a result, after modernization, the network has sufficient reserves to cover demand for the next few years.
