Abstract
Upgrading the capacity of backbone optical networks while delivering contents to the end-users with a reduced cost per bit is a day-by-day challenge of network operators. In this paper, we first discuss several mid-term options for capacity upgrades including migration to multi-fibre and multi-band systems (utilizing amplification systems with bandwidth extending over the C+L or the S+C+L bands). The multi-band approach is shown to be more costeffective than the multi-fibre approach under certai...
