Design and Performance Evaluation of DWDM Links: The Case of Metropolitan Delta Network Extension for Research and Education in Mexico

Pedro Jesús Nájera-Chávez and Aida Huerta-Barrientos
Abstract—The Delta Metropolitan academic network is a fiber-optic networks that interconnects high performance supercomputing clusters of National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM) and Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (CINVESTAV-IPN). The aim of this paper is to design DWDM links and evaluate the optic receiver performance to connecting additional academic institutions as the Faculties of Higher Studies (FES) of UNAM to the Delta Metropolitan academic network. The four selected FES are Zaragoza, Aragon, Iztacala and Cuautitlan, so the DWDM links designed are FES Zaragoza-UNAM, FES Aragon-UNAM, FES Iztacala-UNAM and FES Cuautitlan-UNAM. We calculate the power budget for the four fiber-optic links. Then we analyze the DWDM receiver performance through the eye diagram tool. Our results show that from the technical perspective the four DWDM links designed are feasible to be installed.

Index Terms—Delta network, DWDM design, DWDM performance evaluation, research and education network.
