express WDM

Double Bandwidth over Fiber Optics

express WDM The express WDM concept is the easiest solution for increasing the bandwidth on fiber optic lines.
The express WDM with 1310/1550 nm enables the multiplexing and demultiplexing of two wavelength regions with high isolation and low insertion loss. This way, the capacity of fiber optic lines are being doubled in a cost-effective way.

The channel transport wavelengths - 1310 nm and 1550 nm - support the existing legacy standards for data transmission over fiber optic lines. Therefore, using special transceivers, GBICs, or SFP modules is not necessary for WDM.

WDM components are extensively used in datacommunication and telecom networks.

  • Easy integration of new services over existing fiber optic lines
  • Low-cost transceivers applicable, existing equipment can still be used
  • Fully transparent to all data rates and protocols
  • Up to 10 Gbit/s per channel
  • Multiplexer in 19" housing or fully flexible patch cable unit
  • Entirely passive device, no power supply needed
Application Examples
  • 1310/1550 nm simultaneous operation on a single fiber
  • Doubles the Capacity of Existing Links
