Abstract
An innovative optical infrastructure sharing solution for triple play services is described. A "black-link" type of architecture is proposed. We outline the commercial and architectural benefits delivered by this new model. We also present experimental results that demonstrate how wavelength translation (WT) can be used to upgrade existing optical fiber communication systems through improvements in the system dispersion or attenuation tolerances by using dense wavelength division (DWDM) and corase wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) SFPs.
