Muxponder: Take a Fresh Look at 100G

100G technology is evolving dramatically, and it soon becomes a necessity for carriers and enterprises to handle the escalating data traffic and bandwidth consumption. As a fraction of WDM technology, 100G muxponder emerges as a perfect alternative to enable full utilization of existing fiber, maximizing the network capacity and performance for now and future. So […]

Single-Fiber CWDM MUX/DEMUX Analysis

Dual-fiber CWDM MUX/DEMUX is typically used in CWDM network to achieve dual way transmission, which transmits and receives signals with the same wavelength. A duplex fiber links two dual-fiber CWDM MUX/DEMUXs, supporting the same wavelengths installed on each end of the optical network. Two fibers with the same wavelength enable duplex transmission on different directions. […]

Introduction to the Components Used in CWDM System

CWDM system is a passive optical solution for increasing the flexibility and capacity of existing fiber lines in high-speed networks. It increases fiber capacity by placing widely spaced, separate wavelengths (between 1310 nm and 1610 nm) from multiple ports onto a single-mode fiber pair on the network. The CWDM system components are passive and require […]

Introduction to the Components Used in DWDM System

DWDM is an innovation that enables multiple optical carriers to travel in parallel in a fiber. DWDM devices combine the output from several optical transmitters for transmission across a single fiber. At the receiving end, another DWDM device separates the combined optical signals and passes each channel to an optical receiver. Only one optical fiber […]

Understanding the Split Ratios and Splitting Level of Optical Splitters

Optical splitters play an important role in FTTH PON networks where a single optical input is split into multiple output, thus allowing a single PON interface to be shared among many subscribers. The optical splitters have no active electronics and don’t require any power to operate. They are typically installed in each optical network between […]
