Abstract
HomeFiber Networks has successfully demonstrated the use of Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing in a residential Fiber-To-The-Home installation in Northern California. The primary driver for using Wavelength Division Multiplexing is to allow multiple Ethernet switches to be served over a single pair of fibers. Today, the available dark fiber in and around small metropolitan areas comes at a premium, as it's primarily serving business customers. For Fiber-To-The-Home to even begin to become economically feasible, it's paramount to aggregate as much traffic as possible over as few fibers as possible. In this respect, the local network is somewhat similar to metropolitan area as well as long-distance networks. However, for a local network the cost must be brought to an absolute minimum. Coarse wavelength division offers such a solution, which also is scalable.
