by Cisco Systems
Published 2005; Posted February 2006




The Cisco IP over DWDM (IPoDWDM) solution enables seamless integration between the IP layer and the DWDM layer to increase efficiencies, improve reliability, and quicken speed to service even as rapid traffic growth due to video-based applications occurs. The Cisco approach provides a migration to an integrated IP over DWDM network that automates provisioning and minimizes OEO conversions and associated equipment required in the network, while providing flexible management models that respect organizational boundaries.


This white paper describes the IPoDWDM core convergence challenges. It then focuses on Cisco's IPoDWDM Solution and finally touches on Cisco's IPoDWDM advantage.
