A method for transmission of multiple, independent data packages across a single optical fiber utilizing both time division multiplexing and wavelength division multiplexing is described. The method includes transmitting a first data package across the single optical fiber at a first wavelength and transmitting a second data package across the same optical fiber at a second wavelength, in either the same direction or in a direction opposite as the first data package, wherein the second data package transmission may be concurrent with the first data package transmission. the method further includes separating the data package transmissions into two optical paths, filtering the second wavelength from a first of the two optical paths, detecting the first data package at the first wavelength, filtering the first wavelength from a second of the two optical paths, and detecting the second data package data at the second wavelength.
