optical space division multiplexing (OSDM)

Optical Space Division Multiplexing (OSDM) is a parallel connection of multiple optical fibers, which can be implemented by loose tubes or by multicore fibers such as Multicore Glass Optical Fiber( MC-GOF).

Principle of space division multiplex

In optical space division multiplexing, each channel is assigned to its own optical fiber and has different bit rates and modulation techniques. During installation, unused optical fibers, so-called dark fibers, must be planned for, which can be switched for further applications or in the event of a fault as a replacement path.

For this reason, multi-fiber cables such as ribbon fiber are suitable for optical space division multiplexing, and bundled optical fibers with more than 5,000 individual fibers are suitable for large applications.
