Fibre: Comparison table of the three main types of fibre multiplexing

Below is a comparison table of the three main types of fibre multiplexing: wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), frequency division multiplexing (FDM), and time division multiplexing (TDM). The table rates each method on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of capacity, transmission rates, complexity, and susceptibility to interference.

Method Capacity (1-10) Transmission Rates (1-10) Complexity (1-10) Interference (1-10)
WDM 10 10 8 2
FDM 8 8 6 6
TDM 6 6 2 8

Note that these ratings are subjective and may vary depending on the specific application and implementation of each method. However, this table should give you a general idea of the relative strengths and weaknesses of each method of fibre multiplexing.
