An optical network is a type of data communication network built with optical fiber technology. It utilizes optical fiber cables as the primary communication medium for converting data and passing data as light pulses between sender and receiver nodes.This PPT will give a complete knowledge about Optical Networking.

    Why are fibers what they are? Most data communications fibers are silica based Fibers are "pretty clear", but not perfectly clear Impurities and construction limitations will constrain the optical transmission properties Many or the design properties of fibers are based on inherent technology capabilities/limitations of the light sources available at the time LED sources were good for multimode fibers in the 850 nm range Higher speed lasers at 1310 nm required lower attenuation and dispersion in the fiber — and vice versa Higher data rates required still further evolution into the 1550 nm range
  • 8
    So whats up wit the fiber? Fibers are "light guides" Almost clear, silica based Use materials of different refractive indices to confine and guide the light , Core Lowest refractive index Primary light medium Cladding Higher index of refraction than core Bends escaping light back into core , Jacket Mechanically protects the fiber

    Limiting factors of optical fiber Junctions Splices Connectors Linear effects — directly related to the length Attenuation Absorption Scattering Dispersion ' Modal dispersion Chromatic dispersion ' Polarization Mode dispersion
  • 10
    Limiting Characteristics of Fiber Linear effects — a function of the fiber length Attenuation — reduces power output of a fiber segment Absorption — light is absorbed due to chemical properties of the fiber so that less energy is emitted ' Scattering — light is re-directed by the molecular properties of the fiber resulting in leakage into the cladding, jacket, or lost at junctions Dispersion — broadens the optical pulse over length of a fiber segment Modal — differing "modes" traverse different paths in the fiber Chromatic — different frequencies of light travel at different speeds in a medium Polarization — orthogonal light waves travel at different speeds in the fiber

    Attenuation Absorption — Chemical properties of the fiber absorb some of the energy Scattering — Molecular properties cause the light to be re- directed — portions of it are lost in the cladding or are reflected back to the source
  • 20
    Dispersion Dispersion causes the digital waveform to be "smeared" — Rise/fall time expands over the length of the fiber Modal dispersion only present in multi- mode fibers Chromatic dispersion arises from spectral width
  • 21
    Modal dispersion ' Each "mode" travels along a different path. — Light enters the guide from different insertion angles — Each path has a different length and so arrives at different times ' Primary limiting factor of multi-mode fiber for high speed communications
  • 22
    Modal Dispersion Multimode fibers have a core diameter of 50 microns to 62.5 microns — Less rigorous tolerances make construction easier Splicing and connectors are more easily engineered Typically under 2 kilometer distances (less at high data rates) By sizing the diameter of the core properly as a function of wavelength and refractive indices of core and cladding, the wave guide can be constrained to carry only a single "mode" of the incident laser signal. Single mode fiber has a core diameter of approximately 8-11 microns SM fiber does not exhibit modal dispersion
  • 23
    Chromatic Dispersion Lasers do not emit a single wavelength — Spectral width Different wavelengths of light travel at different velocities in a given medium. — Index of refraction Tails of the laser spectral distribution travel at different speeds down the wave guide Frequency domain
  • 24
    Chromatic Dispersion Chromatic dispersion is sum of wave-guide dispersion (+) and material dispersion (-) Fiber design can vary the amount of wave-guide dispersion in order to cancel the material dispersion at a desired wavelength Zero Dispersion-Shifted Fiber (ZDSF) Non-linear effects are dampened by dispersion, so... Shift the zero dispersion point a bit past the operating wavelengths.. Non-zero Dispersion Shifted Fiber (NZ-DSF) Dispersion can be positive or negative Negative dispersion fiber can counter effects of normal fiber... Dispersion Compensating Fiber (DCF)
  • 25
    Chromatic Dispersion Measured in ps/(nm*km) E.g. 5ps/(nanometer kilometer) How would chromatic dispersion affect an OC48 link with laser at +/-lnm spectral line over a 20 km NZ-DSF fiber link? Bit period = 416ps 2 nm spectral band * 5 ps/(nm km) * 20 km = 200 ps Result: rise/fall time is 50% of bit period — The link is on the edge (may see excessive bit errors) Possible adjustments: Reduce span (add a regen point) .Find an interface with better source laser, better receiver parameters, or both — I.e. may mean a more expensive XL interface Reduce the link bandwidth — GigEthernet would likely work comfortably. OC192 with a .2 nm spectral width over 50 km Bit = 104 ps .2 nm spectral band * 4ps/nmkm * 50 km = 40 ps (+/- 20 ps) 40% of duty cycle — will probably work The finer the laser line, the less chromatic dispersion affects the emitted signal.
  • 26
    Polarization Mode Dispersion 'Single mode" fiber actually allows light consisting of orthogonal poloraizations (the electric and magnetic fields of different photons are not aligned.) "Bimodal" fiber. .. Due to construction methods, installation, environmental conditions, etc., the effective area of the core varies along the axis of the fiber. This variance if EA causes subtle differences in propagation speed of the light wave based upon the polarization of the component photons. Result: Dispersion Not well understood Typically only of concern at data rate in excess of 2.4 Gbs Measured in ps/sqrt(km) Of most concern in fiber manufactured and installed prior to early 1990s.

    Optical Network Components Splitters Splits off some portion of the optical signal Splitters do not demultiplex the optical signals 100% Wavelength Converters Often require electrical intermediate step New devices allow conversion in optical domain
  • 29
    Opto-electronic Conversion Wavelength conversion is typically required to interface traditional optical interfaces to ITU "grid compliant" wavelengths used in DWDM systems CPE typically at 1310nm with relatively broad spectral band Optical Channel Modules (OCM) take the 1310 optical signal, convert it to its electrical equivalent, and then re-transmit it with the assigned ITU wavelength This is generally referred to as O-E-O This OEO process can be employed mid-span to perform some or all of the 3Rs — Retiming, Reshaping, Re- generation.
  • 30
    The Three "R"s Re-timing Verify and compensate for clocking drift Re-shaping Compensate for attenuation and/or dispersion Sharpen the "eye' Re-transmission Completely decode and re-create the digital bit stream. Often includes intelligent processing of the framing headers for O&M purposes.

Dispersion: At = sqrt( At2 + At2 chromatic polarization = -8ps/nm.km * 11 km * 20 nm + 0 = -1760 ps not good (given a 400 ps bit period) So how do we correct it?

    Building the ARL OC48 for sc02 Situation: @ 1310 (or at 1550) power is good, but... At 1310 dispersion, 1760 ps, is too high to support Options: Reduce bandwidth: OC3 duty cycle is 6400 ps and would work fine — but not adequate for application Find a long reach interface, hopefully with a SW less than 2nm and at 1550

  • 41
    Why does the Inverted Transponder solve the problem? The transponder has broadband receiver(s) on both the line side and CPE side The CPE xmit was 1550 with broadband recv. By inverting the transponder we send a 1550 signal with a very narrow SW towards the CPE — dispersion is reduced
