About Us

The SWDM Alliance is a collection of companies who believe that the adoption of shortwave wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) is a cost-effective means of transmitting multiple channels on one duplex multimode fiber pair. The goal of the organization is to create and promote an industry ecosystem that fosters the adoption of SWDM for cost-effective data center interconnections over duplex multimode fiber at data rates at or above 40 Gbps.

The SWDM Alliance is focused first on 40 Gbps (using four 10 Gbps wavelengths) and then on 100 Gbps (using four 25 Gbps wavelengths).

The SWDM Alliance does not address market segmentation, pricing, or competitive issues.
