Scalable 8-channel DWDM multiplexer

8-channel DWDM Multiplexer - Scalable to 40 optical Channels

  • Protocol transparent (10 Mbps to 100 Gbps)
  • Highly scalable solution – „pay as you grow“
  • Up to 40 protocol transparent channels using one pair of fibers
  • For high or low-speed services
  • No power supply required
  • 8-channel DWDM Multiplexer for Bandwidths from 10 Mbps up to 100 Gbps

    The SPEED-DWDM 81E-34/41-A is a purely passive Mux/Demux module providing 8 DWDM and four extension ports in one unit. In point-to-point connection up to eight applications can be transmitted without additional efforts by using one pair of fibers in a first step. Using the scalable design with four extension ports, further channels can be used for services. Each DWDM channel supports bandwidths from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps protocol transparent.
    The The SPEED-DWDM 81 series represents an innovative and scalable system for transmission of up to 40 independent applications over one pair of fiber
