Objectives: The main aim of this research paper is to design a 80 channel DWDM system with each channel having 10 Gbps data rate multiplexed with frequency spacing 100 GHz. Methods/Statistical analysis: Dispersion is an important factor to be considered while designing a DWDM system. Dispersion affects the penalties due to various types of fiber nonlinearities. Single mode fiber is preferred for long distance communication over Multimode fiber. In this proposed work Optisystem 7.0 simulator is used to analyze dispersion effect. The system performance is optimized by using Dispersion compensation fiber to compensate for the dispersion produced by single mode fiber. Findings: The system performance is limited by the dispersion. In order to compensate this we have used Dispersion compensation fiber. Between amplifier spans is standard single-mode fiber, but at each amplifier location, dispersion compensating fiber having a negative chromatic dispersion is introduced. By using this we have successfully designed a DWDM system with 80 channels each 10 Gbps data rate multiplexed with frequency spacing 100 GHz. Application/Improvements: It is realized that, in coming future, DWDM can emerge as a promising technique to increase the capacity and meet the bandwidth requirement. This work can further be extended to more number of channels i.e. 100 channels or more with even smaller frequency spacing.
