Fiberdyne Labs Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexer (DWDM) Modules

Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexer (DWDM) Modules

    Introduction:
    Fiberdyne Labs offers DWDM modules in a wide variety of formats. While Fiberdyne offers some models as "standard," we will also produce customized DWDM modules. Customization can include the number and selection of DWDM channels. Additionally, modules may include tap/monitoring capability and variable attenuation. These modules may be a number of standard form factors, such as LGX, FCH (Corning CCH compatible), ADC (Package A), and EIA-standard 19/23-inch rackmount.
    DWDM is a proven technology, which offers flat channel bandwidth, flexible channel configuration, low insertion loss and high isolation. Fiberdyne Labs modules can be optically daisy-chained, to provide additional channels as bandwidth needs grow. Modules are available on the C & L bands, ITU 100GHz grid at channel spacing of 100GHz or 200GHz.
