Electronic – Are optical fibers full duplex


Can optical fibers transmit in both directions simultaneously? Both single mode fibers and multi mode? What about if they we choose non-interfering wavelengths?

Best Answer

Theoretically, such concepts are good to be imagined and, in fact, it is possible to make one that can communicate bidirectionally, but for reliability it is preferable to have a duplex with two fibers.
