Major Challenges:

  • Limited spectral efficiency in optical fiber network 
    • To ensure optimal use of optical fiber infrastructure, WDM systems aim to maximize the number of signals transmitted over limited bandwidth. However, this approach faces challenges. Kerr nonlinearities and amplification noise cause signal distortions and imperfections in optical amplifiers and transponders, limiting network performance. Consequently, vendors will encounter difficulties due to the growing complexity of network infrastructure.
    • As more signals are packed into fibers, spectral efficiency is hindered, leading to technical constraints. These issues will pose obstacles for vendors in the coming forecast period, necessitating innovative solutions to maintain network effectiveness. Balancing signal density with infrastructure capabilities will be crucial for overcoming these challenges and ensuring the continued efficiency of optical networks.
