This paper describes design of the Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) transmission system using Alien Wavelength channels for medical data exchange. Main purpose of such system is to develop variety of services for medical cases diagnostics in order to comply with modern standards in telemedicine. Those standards refer to photo or video data transmission produced by diagnostic devices used in radiological centers together with text data concerning medical case analysis and patient data. These features are delivered by Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). PACS describes intra-hospital network organization, which applies to constructing system data from raw graphical data and text information according to Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) version 3.0 standard. This standard is used by authors to evaluate necessary bit rate concerning all types of services delivered by PACS and cumulative throughput of link connections between hospitals and databases. Organization of this connections in metropolitan WDM system using advantages of Alien Wavelength technique is this article the main goal. Difference between configurable and non-configurable 10 Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) end devices for AlienWavelength channels are analyzed and compared with the standard approach using transponder cards.
