    Abstract :

    The increasing growth in the data traffic demands posed by recent advances in cloud computing, social networking and smart devices is rapidly saturating the capacity of deployed optical fiber infrastructure. According to recent forecasts ~30% increase in internet traffic per year is expected which is quickly driving the optical networks out of capacity[1]. In order to avoid this capacity crunch, the overall capacity of the deployed optical fiber network must be increased. There has been continuous work to increase the capacity & data rate beyond Terabit/second using various multiplexing technology. This paper presents the features and recent advances in technologies (wired/wireless)e.g., OFDM, WDM, SDM, Li-Fi being used in optical communication to enhance the data rate, spectral efficiency, bandwidth etc. with review on recent progress in each.
