This paper presents mitigating the effect of chromatic dispersion in shared path optical network using intelligent Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technique. The study reviewed literatures and identified that DWDM currently in use to compensate for losses due to chromatic dispersion, also experience technical problems of collision, and affects quality of data transmission. To solve this problem an intelligent rule-based optimization algorithm was developed to improve the DWDM. This was implemented with Optiwave software and used to improve the optical network. Result of signal strength at 50km distance was -55.161dBm for a transmit power of 3.047W. While that of the network with IDWDM recorded for power 3.523W and signal strength -54.530dBm. The result implied that with IDWDM, the percentage in noise reduction is 13.5% when power is considered and 1.14% when signal strength is considered.
