Homework Help: Wavelength modulation/Prism

  1. Apr 23, 2006 #1

    I'm writting a paper on link aggregation (computer networks) and I've decided to write a little bit on Wavelength modulation, which is the process of directing the light from a fibre optic connection through a prism , down the cable, and then back again through another prism to increase the bandwidth between 2 switches. (sorry if you already know and I'm describing it all wrong!!)

    Switch 1--fibre optic interface--prism--cable--prism--fibre optic interface--switch 2

    I'm having trouble finding any information on this topic, such as by how much the bandwidth can increase if this was introduced on a 1GB/s connection.

    can anyone help me with this matter please?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
