Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexer
About the Product
The Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexers (CWDM) come as stand-alone modules and as 19” rack-mount assemblies, designed to multiplex (mux) or de-multiplex (demux) optical signals in CWDM systems with multiple channels at an ITU standards defined spacing of 20 nm.
The CWDM features low insertion loss, high isolation and excellent environmental stability.
The ITU-T G.694.2 standard compliant optical wavelength channels available are 1271 nm to 1611 nm at 20 nm spacing. Previously known as 1270 nm to 1610 nm until the relevant ITU standards had redefined the wavelengths to cater for laser temperature issues.
A special range of CWDM units have been developed for RFOG (Radio Frequency over Glass) applications, permitting DOCSIS and HFC to operate over a EPON/GPON compliant Passive Optical Network (PON) as commonly deployed for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) developments.
