C Band + L Band
DescriptionWhile most deployed networks today use C-Band, the L-Band has been available for decades and is also deployed on Dispersion Shifted Fiber. Using both (C+L) doubles the capacity per fiber pair, but requires additional equipment to be added to an in-service traffic bearing system and yields less than optimal performance due to band interaction of separate amplifiers. New C&L Band systems are being designed with fewer components and provide better performance by lighting the entire spectrum day one for lower cost per bit and superior reach. Hear when, where, and why Verizon is pushing the development of this new technology for its nationwide long haul network.
